NAME¶annex-to-annex - use hardlinks to migrate files between git annex repos
SYNOPSIS¶annex-to-annex [--commit] source ... destination
DESCRIPTION¶This script moves files and directories from one or more git annexes into a destination git annex, where possible using hardlinks instead of copying files.
It is useful for splitting and consolidating git annexes. For example, at the end of the semester I use this script to move files from my work annex, which gets synced to a lot of places, into an archival annex, which doesn't.
Each source should be a file or directory in a git annex. destination should be a subdirectory of a git annex.
- Commit changes in the source and destination annexes. Otherwise changes are merely added to the index.
