git-annex-forget(1)	    General Commands Manual	   git-annex-forget(1)

NAME
       git-annex-forget	- prune	git-annex branch history

SYNOPSIS
       git annex forget

DESCRIPTION
       Causes  the  git-annex branch to	be rewritten, throwing away historical
       data about past locations of files. The resulting branch	will use  less
       space,  but  git	annex log will not be able to show where files used to
       be located.

       When this rewritten branch is merged into other clones of  the  reposi-
       tory,  git-annex	will automatically perform the same rewriting to their
       local git-annex branches. So the	forgetfulness will automatically prop-
       agate  out  from	its starting point until all repositories running git-
       annex have forgotten their old history. (You may	need to	force  git  to
       push the	branch to any git repositories not running git-annex.)

OPTIONS
       --drop-dead

	      Also  prune  references to repositories that have	been marked as
	      dead.
