NAME¶git-annex-dropkey - drops annexed content for specified keys
SYNOPSIS¶git annex dropkey [key ...]
DESCRIPTION¶This plumbing-level command drops the annexed data for the specified keys from this repository.
This can be used to drop content for arbitrary keys, which do not need to have a file in the git repository pointing at them.
Warning: This command does not check that enough other copies of the content exist; using it can easily result in data loss.
- Enables batch mode, in which lines containing keys to drop are read from stdin.
- Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
- Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
