git‐annex‐adjust − enter an adjusted branch

git annex adjust −−unlock|−−fix|−−hide−missing

Enters an adjusted form of the current branch. The annexed
files will be treated differently. For example with −−unlock
all annexed files will be unlocked.

     The adjusted branch will have a name like
"adjusted/master(unlocked)".  Since it’s a regular git
branch, you can use git checkout to switch back to the
original branch at any time.

     While in the adjusted branch, you can use git‐annex and
git commands as usual. Any commits that you make will
initially only be made to the adjusted branch.

     To propagate commits from the adjusted branch back to
the original branch, and to other repositories, as well as
to merge in changes from other repositories, run git annex

     Re−running this command with the same options while
inside the adjusted branch will update the adjusted branch
as necessary (eg for −−hide−missing), and will also
propagate commits back to the original branch.

     This command can only be used in a v6 git‐annex


     Unlock all annexed files in the adjusted branch. This
     allows annexed files to be modified.

     Fix the symlinks to annexed files to point to the local
     git annex object directory. This can be useful if a
     repository is checked out in an unusual way that
     prevents the symlinks committed to git from pointing at
     the annex objects.

     Only include annexed files in the adjusted branch when
     their content is present.


     The adjusted branch is not immediately changed when
     content availability changes, so if you git annex drop
     files, they will become broken links in the usual way.
     And when files that were missing are copied into the
     repository from elsewhere, they won’t immediatly become
     visible in the branch.

     To update the adjusted branch to reflect changes to
     content availability, run git annex adjust
     −−hide−missing again.

     Despite missing files being hidden, git annex sync
     −−content will still operate on them, and can be used
     to download missing files from remotes.

     This option can be combined with −−unlock or −−fix.
