I keep a database file in git-annex so it stays synced across several machines. My wrapper when accessing it is basically
git annex sync --content git annex unlock $database [access database] git annex add $database git annex sync --content
This works fine except it creates an entry in the log for the database file even if that stays unchanged. I would like an option that just returns to the state before
git annex unlock if the file has not been changed. Maybe
git annex add --restore-unchanged?
