NAME

       git-annex-required - get or set required content expression

SYNOPSIS

       git annex required repository [expression]

DESCRIPTION

       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(1) is just a preference, this 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.

NOTES

       The required command was added in git-annex 5.20150420.
