I am quite new to git-annex so it's possible/probable this is a FAQ, but my search-fu has failed me.

Namely, I'm testing out git-annex and have a sample repo on a remote server, let's call it "foo". Now I have SSH Controlmaster setup because foo has both a password and PIN that need entered so I usually do a screen and run ssh -MN foo and detach so that I can do ssh foo and boom, on foo no problem. And I can do scp foo:file . and no need to enter in either.

So then I tried following the walkthroughs here. First:

❯ git clone git+ssh://foo:/path/to/my/annex
Cloning into 'annex'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 28, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (28/28), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (22/22), done.
remote: Total 28 (delta 4), reused 0 (delta 0), pack-reused 0
Receiving objects: 100% (28/28), done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (4/4), done.

Nice. Then I did:

❯ git annex init "my laptop"
init my laptop (scanning for unlocked files...)
Enter PIN:
(recording state in git...)

Worked, but had to enter PIN and password. And then I get and:

❯ git annex get file1.nc4
get file1.nc4 (from origin...)
Enter PIN:
(recording state in git...)

Same thing: worked, but had to do PIN/password. So, is there a way I can utilize an existing controlmaster "tunnel" and avoid the pin/password like I can with a simple ssh foo?
