Hi all,

how can I get rid of all those 'typechange' messages in git status when in direct mode?

Here is an example session:

> git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /some/path/.git/
> git config user.name dtrn
> git config user.email drn@drn.com
> git annex init
init  ok
(Recording state in git...)
> git annex direct
# On branch master
# Initial commit
nothing to commit (create/copy files and use "git add" to track)
direct  ok
> dd if=/dev/zero of=testfile.bin count=1000
1000+0 records in
1000+0 records out
512000 bytes (512 kB) copied, 0.00317424 s, 161 MB/s
> git annex add testfile.bin
add testfile.bin (checksum...) ok
(Recording state in git...)
> git commit -m "annexed testfile.bin"
[master (root-commit) 281e740] annexed testfile.bin
 1 file changed, 1 insertion(+)
 create mode 120000 testfile.bin
>  git status
# On branch master
# Changes not staged for commit:
#   (use "git add <file>..." to update what will be committed)
#   (use "git checkout -- <file>..." to discard changes in working directory)
#       typechange: testfile.bin
no changes added to commit (use "git add" and/or "git commit -a")

Regards, Andreas
