git-annex-pre-commit(1) run by git pre-commit hook


git annex pre-commit [path ...]


This is meant to be called from git's pre-commit hook. git annex init automatically creates a pre-commit hook using this.

Fixes up symlinks that are staged as part of a commit, to ensure they point to annexed content.

When in a view, updates metadata to reflect changes made to files in the view.

When in a repository that has not been upgraded to annex.version 6, also handles injecting changes to unlocked files into the annex.
