Please describe the problem.

Fails to addurl --fast (there is additional problem there anyways since size is not provided by the server -- generated on the fly), but more important that refuses to drop even when addurl/wget fetch it just fine (although different one each time ATM -- probably time stamp within zip etc)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

just try that url in the pasted output below

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?


Please provide any additional information below.

  Could only verify the existence of 0 out of 1 necessary copies

  Rather than dropping this file, try using: git annex move

  (Use --force to override this check, or adjust numcopies.)
