borg-with-lock - run a user specified command with the repository lock held
borg [common options] with-lock [options] REPOSITORY COMMAND [ARGS...]
This command runs a user-specified command while the repository lock is held.
It will first try to acquire the lock (make sure that no other
operation is running in the repo), then execute the given command as a
subprocess and wait for its termination, release the lock and return the
user command's return code as borg's return code.
See borg-common(1) for common options of Borg commands.
If you copy a repository with the lock held, the lock
will be present in the copy. Thus, before using borg on the copy from a
different host, you need to use "borg break-lock" on the copied
repository, because Borg is cautious and does not automatically remove stale
locks made by a different host.
