       Add content of an archive under git annex control.

       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]
