Use case: I would like to have a "Public" top-level directory in my annex, which gets files in there published over HTTP on a particular server.

How I see doing this:

  1. Put my annex to an http server with exported-over-http /Public/ directory.
  2. Configure a post-update hook with the following:

     $ git annex fix
  3. Push files on /Public/ to that annex.

Does it make sense? If yes, are there any gotchas I should beware of?
