I think that this is possible with git-annex as it exists right now, but I'm just looking to make sure.
Right now I have a file tree that looks something like this:
+ knowledge + media + ...
And this goes on and on.
I'd like to create a git-annex repo for each top level folder. This means that there will be about 5 different git-annex repos on one external hard drive. Each of those repos would have a remote on my local machine, a flash drive, and another external hard drive.
Before I go about moving these hundreds of gigabytes of files around, I just wanted to make sure that nothing should blow up if
cd into each of those top level directories on my external drive and initialize a git annex repo inside each of them. After that I would add the contents of each folder to their respective annex formed in that folder. At the end of the day, if I did this, would I be left with each of those directories converted into their own git-annex repo, with each repor containing all of the files that used to be in that respective directory?
Thanks for the input!
