git‐annex‐dropkey − drops annexed content for specified keys

git annex dropkey [key ...]

This plumbing−level command drops the annexed data for the
specified keys from this repository.

     This can be used to drop content for arbitrary keys,
which do not need to have a file in the git repository
pointing at them.

     Warning: This command does not check that enough other
copies of the content exist; using it can easily result in
data loss.


     Enables batch mode, in which lines containing keys to
     drop are read from stdin.

     Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by
     programs that use git‐annex. Each line of output is a
     JSON object.

     Messages that would normally be output to standard
     error are included in the json instead.
