NAME
       git-annex-reinit - initialize repository, reusing old UUID

SYNOPSIS
       git annex reinit uuid|description

DESCRIPTION
       Normally, initializing a repository generates a new, unique identifier
       (UUID) for that repository. Occasionally it may be useful to reuse a UUID
       -- for example, if a repository got deleted, and you're setting it back
       up.

       Use this with caution; it can be confusing to have two existing
       repositories with the same UUID.

       Make sure you run git annex fsck after changing the UUID of a repository
       to make sure location tracking information is recorded correctly.

       Like git annex init, this attempts to enable any special remotes that are
       configured with autoenable=true.
