Right now git annex import DIR/* will import all the files in DIR, both those that are already known to git-annex and those that are new. Using the option --skip-duplicates one can import only new files that are in DIR but unknown to git-annex.

It would be nice if there were an opposite --only-duplicates option that could be used to import only the files that are already known to git, ignoring the new files in DIR.

PS: it would also be nice to have aliases like --only-new-files and --skip-new-files for --skip-duplicates and --only-duplicates.

I think that either git annex reinject --known or git annex import --reinject-known can handle this use case. So, done --Joey
