       datalad add-archive-content - add content of an archive under git annex control.


       datalad  add-archive-content  [-h]  [--annex  ANNEX] [--add-archive-leading-dir] [--strip-
              leading-dirs]    [--leading-dirs-depth     LEADING_DIRS_DEPTH]     [--leading-dirs-
              consider  LEADING_DIRS_CONSIDER]  [--use-current-dir]  [-d]  [--key]  [-e  EXCLUDE]
              [-r     RENAME]     [--existing     {fail,overwrite,archive-suffix,numeric-suffix}]
              [-o  ANNEX_OPTIONS] [--copy] [--no-commit] [--allow-dirty] [--stats STATS] [--drop-
              after] [--delete-after] archive


       This results in the files within archive  (which  must  be  already  under  annex  control
       itself)  added  under  annex  referencing  original  archive  via  custom  special remotes


         annex-repo$ datalad add-archive-content my_big_tarball.tar.gz


              archive file or a key (if --key specified). Constraints: value must be a string

       -h, --help, --help-np
              show this help message. --help-np forcefully  disables  the  use  of  a  pager  for
              displaying the help message

       --annex ANNEX
              annex instance to use. [Default: None]

              flag to place extracted content under a directory which would correspond to archive
              name with suffix stripped.  E.g.  for  archive  EXAMPLE.ZIP  its  content  will  be
              extracted under a directory EXAMPLE/. [Default: False]

              flag  to move all files directories up, from how they were stored in an archive, if
              that one contained a number (possibly more than 1 down) single leading directories.
              [Default: False]

       --leading-dirs-depth LEADING_DIRS_DEPTH
              maximal  depth  to strip leading directories to. If not specified (None), no limit.
              [Default: None]

       --leading-dirs-consider LEADING_DIRS_CONSIDER
              regular expression(s) for directories to consider to strip away. Constraints: value
              must be a string [Default: None]

              flag  to  extract  archive  under  the  current  directory, not the directory where
              archive is located. Note that it will be of no effect if --key is given.  [Default:

       -d, --delete
              flag  to delete original archive from the filesystem/git in current tree. Note that
              it will be of no effect if --key is given. [Default: False]

       --key  flag to signal if provided archive is not actually a filename on  its  own  but  an
              annex key. [Default: False]

       -e EXCLUDE, --exclude EXCLUDE
              regular  expressions  for  filenames  which  to  exclude from being added to annex.
              Applied after --rename if that one is specified. For exact matching, use anchoring.
              Constraints: value must be a string [Default: None]

       -r RENAME, --rename RENAME
              regular  expressions  to  rename  files  before being added under git. First letter
              defines how to split provided string into  two  parts:  Python  regular  expression
              (with  groups),  and  replacement  string.  Constraints:  value  must  be  a string
              [Default: None]

       --existing {fail, overwrite, archive-suffix, numeric-suffix}
              what operation to perform a file from archive tries to overwrite an  existing  file
              with  the  same name. 'fail' (default) leads to RuntimeError exception. 'overwrite'
              silently replaces  existing  file.  'archive-suffix'  instructs  to  add  a  suffix
              (prefixed  with a '-') matching archive name from which file gets extracted, and if
              that one present, 'numeric-suffix' is  in  effect  in  addition,  when  incremental
              numeric  suffix  (prefixed  with  a '.') is added until no name collision is longer
              detected. [Default: 'fail']

       -o ANNEX_OPTIONS, --annex-options ANNEX_OPTIONS
              additional options to pass to  git-annex.  Constraints:  value  must  be  a  string
              [Default: None]

       --copy flag to copy the content of the archive instead of moving. [Default: False]

              flag to not commit upon completion. [Default: True]

              flag that operating on a dirty repository (uncommitted or untracked content) is ok.
              [Default: False]

       --stats STATS
              ActivityStats instance for global tracking. [Default: None]

              drop extracted files after adding to annex. [Default: False]

              extract under a temporary directory, git-annex add, and delete after. To be used to
              "index" files within annex without actually creating corresponding files under git.
              Note that `annex dropunused` would later remove that load. [Default: False]
