NAME

       git-annex-upgrade - upgrade repository

SYNOPSIS

       git annex upgrade

DESCRIPTION

       Upgrades the repository.

       Each  git-annex  repository  has an annex.version in its git configuration, that indicates
       the repository version. When an old repository version becomes deprecated, git-annex  will
       automatically upgrade it (unless annex.autoupgraderepository is set to false). To manually
       upgrade, you can use this command.

       Sometimes there's a newer repository version that is not the default yet, and then you can
       use this command to upgrade to it.

       Currently,  git-annex supports upgrades all the way back to version 0, which was only used
       by its author. It's expected that git-annex will always support upgrading  from  all  past
       repository  versions  -- this is necessary to allow archives to be taken offline for years
       and later used.
