       datalad check-dates - find repository dates that are more recent than a reference date.


       datalad  check-dates [-h] [-D DATE] [--rev REVISION] [--annex {all|tree|none}] [--no-tags]
              [--older] [--version] [PATH ...]


       The main purpose of this tool is to find "leaked" real  dates  in  repositories  that  are
       configured  to  use  fake dates. It checks dates from three sources: (1) commit timestamps
       (author and committer dates), (2) timestamps within files of the "git-annex"  branch,  and
       (3) the timestamps of annotated tags.


       PATH   Root  directory  in  which  to  search  for  Git  repositories. The current working
              directory will be used by default. Constraints: value must be  a  string  or  value
              must be NONE

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

       -D DATE, --reference-date DATE
              Compare dates to this date. If dateutil is installed, this value can be any  format
              that  its  parser  recognizes. Otherwise, it should be a unix timestamp that starts
              with a "@".  The  default  value  corresponds  to  01  Jan,  2018  00:00:00  -0000.
              Constraints: value must be a string [Default: '@1514764800']

       --rev REVISION
              Search  timestamps  from  commits  that  are  reachable from REVISION. Any revision
              specification supported by git log, including flags like --all and --tags,  can  be
              used. This option can be given multiple times.

       --annex {all|tree|none}
              Mode  for  "git-annex"  branch  search.  If  'all', all blobs within the branch are
              searched. 'tree' limits the search to blobs that are referenced by the tree at  the
              tip  of the branch. 'none' disables search of "git-annex" blobs. Constraints: value
              must be one of ('all', 'tree', 'none') [Default: 'all']

              Don't check the dates of annotated tags.

              Find dates which are older than the reference date rather than newer.
