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

NAME
       git-annex-init -	initialize git-annex

SYNOPSIS
       git annex init [description]

DESCRIPTION
       Until  a	 repository (or	one of its remotes) has	been initialized, git-
       annex will refuse to operate on it, to avoid accidentally using it in a
       repository that was not intended	to have	an annex.

       It's  useful,  but  not	mandatory,  to	initialize each	new clone of a
       repository with its own description. If you don't provide one, one will
       be generated using the username,	hostname and the path.

       If  any special remotes were configured with autoenable=true, this will
       also attempt to enable them. See	git-annex-initremote(1).   To  prevent
       that,  re-enable	 a  remote with	"autoenable=false", or mark it as dead
       (see git-annex-dead(1)).

       This command is entirely	safe, although usually pointless, to  run  in-
       side an already initialized git-annex repository.

       A  top-level  .noannex file will	prevent	git-annex init from being used
       in a repository.	This is	useful for repositories	 that  have  a	policy
       reason  not to use git-annex. The content of the	file will be displayed
       to the user who tries to	run git-annex init.

EXAMPLES
	# git annex add	foo
	git-annex: First run: git-annex	init
	# git annex init
	init ok
	# git annex add	foo
	add foo	ok

OPTIONS
       --version=N

	      Force the	repository to be initialized  using  a	different  an-
	      nex.version than the current default.

	      When  the	 version given is one that automatically upgrades to a
	      newer version, it	will automatically use the newer  version  in-
	      stead.

       --autoenable
	      Only  enable  any	 special remotes that were configured with au-
	      toenable=true, do	not otherwise initialize anything.
