Please describe the problem.

Historically (in older versions of MacOS) to get git-annex working with SourceTree I've done the following:

When committing in SourceTree or SmartGit after adding annex, you may get error "git: 'annex' is not a git command". To fix: First make sure your client is using the system git In SourceTree preferences, go to Git tab and use system git (likely in /usr/bin/git) Disable SIP (needed step starting from Mac OSX El Capitan), by doing the following: Restart your Mac. Then, make a symbolic link so SourceTree/SmartGit can see git-annex (look at which git-annex to find real location): sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/git-annex /usr/bin/git-annex Re-enable SIP, by following the same steps for disabling, but rather issuing the command csrutil enable in the Terminal window

But now, I still can't write the symbolic link with SIP disabled. Obviously this isn't git-annex's fault. But I cannot figure out how to integrate git-annex so that SourceTree can work with it.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

See above.

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

git-annex version: 8.20200908 macOS 10.15.6

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)
