The stats produced by
git annex info . are nice but I often find myself separately looking up the actual numcopies set value. Can this also be included in the report please?
There is not necessarily one single numcopies setting; gitattributes can configure different numcopies for different files.
The numcopies stats in the report are reported as plus or minus relative to the numcopies setting. Using a relative number like that, it can eliminate the complexity of which files have which numcompies setting.
numcopies stats: numcopies +0: 27 numcopies +1: 43 numcopies +2: 1
What could be added is a summary of the absolute number of copies that exist of files, without taking the numcopies configuration into account.
absolute number of copies: 1 copy: 47 2 copies: 23 3 copies: 1
It turns out you can already get this display though! Just use
git annex info . --numcopies=0.
numcopies stats: numcopies +1: 47 numcopies +2: 23 numcopies +3: 1
So, in this mode, it's showing the number of copies that exist of files, relative to numcopies, which is forced to be 0. So, there are 47 files with 1 copy, 23 with 2 copies, and 1 with 3 copies.
