git-annex-required - get or set required content expression
git annex required repository [expression]
When run with an expression, configures the content that is required to be held in the archive. For example: git annex required . "include=*.mp3 or include=*.ogg" Without an expression, displays the current required content setting of the repository. While git-annex-wanted is just a preference, git-annex-required designates content that should really not be removed. For example a file that is wanted can be removed with git annex drop, but if that file is required, it would need to be removed with git annex drop --force. Also, git-annex fsck will warn about required contents that are not present.
The required command was added in git-annex 5.20150420.
