We're using git-annex to manage large files as part of a team.

We have a central repository of large files that everyone grabs from.

We would like to be able to get the files without updating the git-annex branch. This way it doesn't pollute the history with essentially always unreachable locations.

I think the easiest way would be to just add an option to not update the git-annex branch when annex get is executed.

Thoughts?

See ?untracked remotes for a todo item that will probably be useful in this sitation. Since that describes better what this bug report seems to be asking for, I am closing this one. closed --Joey
