Please describe the problem.

I have cloned via http and then went offline... decided to get a file, annex immediately tried to fetch it from origin which it couldn't have access to atm and marked it as annex-ignore. IMHO it is a bit premature action, and annex should mark a remote as ignore only if it managed to reach the remote location and discovered that it has no annex there, not on a mere connectivity fluke

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


Please provide any additional information below.

$> git annex get cond001.txt
(merging origin/git-annex into git-annex...)
(recording state in git...)
get cond001.txt 
  Remote origin not usable by git-annex; setting annex-ignore
(not available) 
  Try making some of these repositories available:
    899f0347-0888-48ef-91b6-bac213ca8cef -- datalad-archives
    c8bd3d05-33d4-4b59-9d53-ca7efbdcdd13 -- yoh@smaug:/mnt/btrfs/datasets/datalad/crawl/openfmri/ds000001

git-annex: get: 1 failed
