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



NAME
       git-annex-required - get or set required content expression

SYNOPSIS
       git annex required repository [expression]

DESCRIPTION
       When run with an expression, configures the content that is required to
       be held in the archive.

       For example:

        git annex required . "include=*.mp3 or include=*.ogg"

       Without an expression, displays the current required content setting of
       the repository.

       While git-annex-wanted is just a preference, git-annex-required
       designates content that should really not be removed. For example a
       file that is wanted can be removed with git annex drop, but if that
       file is required, it would need to be removed with git annex drop
       --force.

       Also, git-annex fsck will warn about required contents that are not
       present.

NOTES
       The required command was added in git-annex 5.20150420.
