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)

I'm really excited about using git-annex, and have spent 3-4 days reading documentation, past bug reports, setting up repos, transferring data, and manually testing failure cases (e.g. this one :p).

Thanks for all your hard work!
