Given that repo1 and repo2 both have a branch adjusted/master(hidemissing), those branches should be local to the repo as they contain the files available locally. Yet, when doing a sync between the two repositories, the branches are forcefully merged which is wrong.

$ git annex sync
commit (recording state in git...)
On branch master
nothing to commit, working tree clean
