NAME
       git-annex-upgrade - upgrade repository layout

SYNOPSIS
       git annex upgrade

DESCRIPTION
       Upgrades the repository to current layout.

       Each git-annex repository has an annex.version in its git configuration,
       that indicates the repository version. If git-annex changes to a new
       layout, you must upgrade the repository before git-annex can be used in
       it.

       To see version information, run git annex version.

       Currently, git-annex supports upgrades all the way back to version 0,
       which was only used by its author. It's expected that git-annex will
       always support upgrading from all past repository versions -- this is
       necessary to allow archives to be taken offline for years and later used.
