git-annex-dropkey - drops annexed content for specified keys

git annex dropkey [key ...]

This plumbing-level command drops the annexed data for the specified keys from this repository.

This can be used to drop content for arbitrary keys, which do not need to have a file in the git repository pointing at them.

Warning: This command does not check that enough other copies of the content exist; using it can easily result in data loss.

--batch
Enables batch mode, in which lines containing keys to drop are read from stdin.
--json
Enable JSON output. This is intended to be parsed by programs that use git-annex. Each line of output is a JSON object.
--json-error-messages
Messages that would normally be output to standard error are included in the json instead.
