I want to use git-annex on a directory that also other persons, without git-annex use, i.e. modify, add and remove files to.

What need I consider when doing that?

  • Use indirect mode
  • The the .git directory somewhere else?
  • Be prepared that a git annex get can always bring up checksum problems because someone modified the file

I assume git-annex checksums before pushing to the repo, so that I don't otherwrite someone elses changes.

What else?
