NAME¶git-annex-upgrade - upgrade repository
SYNOPSIS¶git annex upgrade
DESCRIPTION¶Upgrades the repository.
Each git-annex repository has an annex.version in its git configuration, that indicates the repository version. When an old repository version becomes deprecated, git-annex will automatically upgrade it (unless annex.autoupgraderepository is set to false). To manually upgrade, you can use this command.
Sometimes there's a newer repository version that is not the default yet, and then you can use this command to upgrade to it.
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.
