git-annex-expire - expire inactive repositories
git annex expire [repository:]time ...
This command expires repositories that have not performed some activity within a
specified time period. A repository is expired by marking it as dead.
De-expiration is also done; if a dead repository performed some activity
recently, it is marked as semitrusted again.
This can be useful when it's not possible to keep track of the state of
repositories manually. For example, a distributed network of repositories
where nobody can directly access all the repositories to check their status.
The repository can be specified using the name of a remote, or the description
or uuid of the repository.
The time is in the form "60d" or "1y". A time of
"never" will disable expiration.
If a time is specified without a repository, it is used as the default value for
all repositories. Note that the current repository is never expired.
- Print out what would be done, but not not actually expire
or unexpire any repositories.
- Specify the activity that a repository must have performed
to avoid being expired. The default is any activity.
- Currently, the only activity that can be performed to avoid
expiration is git annex fsck. Note that fscking a remote updates
the expiration of the remote repository, not the local repository.
- The first version of git-annex that recorded fsck activity
