git-annex-remotedaemon(1)    General Commands Manual   git-annex-remotedaemon(1)



NAME
       git-annex-remotedaemon - detects when remotes have changed, and fetches
       from them

SYNOPSIS
       git annex remotedaemon

DESCRIPTION
       This plumbing-level command is used by the assistant to detect when
       remotes have received git pushes, so the changes can be promptly fetched
       and the local repository updated.

       This is a better alternative to the git-annex-xmppgit(1) hack.

       For the remotedaemon to work, the git remote must have git-annex-shell(1)
       installed, with notifychanges support.  The first version of git-
       annex-shell that supports it is 5.20140405.

       It's normal for this process to be running when the assistant is running.
