       ostree-init - Initialize a new empty repository


       ostree init [OPTIONS...]


       Creates a new empty repository.


           Initialize repository in given mode (bare, bare-user, bare-user-only, archive). The
           default is bare. Note that for archive the repository configuration file will actually
           have archive-z2, as that's the historical name.

           See the manual for differences between these modes. Briefly, bare mode stores files as
           they are, so they can be directly hardlinked, bare-user uses extended attributes to
           store ownership and xattr information, allowing non-root operations, bare-user-only
           does not store ownership information, and archive stores files compressed, to be
           served over the network.

           Set the collection ID of the repository. Remotes in clones of this repository must
           configure the same value in order to pull refs which originated in this repository
           over peer to peer.

           This collection ID must be persistent and globally unique. It is formatted as a
           reverse DNS name (like a D-Bus interface). It must be set to a reverse DNS domain
           under your control.

           This option may be omitted (the default) to leave peer to peer distribution
           unsupported for the repository. A collection ID may be added to an existing repository
           in future to enable peer to peer distribution from that point onwards.

           If the collection ID is changed for the repository in future, peer to peer
           distribution of refs from the repository will break for all peers who do not update
           their remote configuration to the new collection ID.
