Please describe the problem.

I've a type=directory remote, with exporttree=yes on a USB disk. when running git annex --content git annex list a long list of export cibox-usb toto ok lines for file it already exported before. I’ve check some of those file, and their content are correct.

Those line hide real new export, and I wonder if it doesn’t slow the process.

There seem to be no way to tell git-annex that those file are already ok, and it should try again to export them. `

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Just running git annex --content name-of-the-remote

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)

It’s only a bug on what git-annex display. It does the asked work: the file are correctly exported where I look for them.
