git-annex-rekey - change keys used for files

git annex rekey [file key ...]

This plumbing-level command is similar to migrate, but you specify both the file, and the new key to use for it.

Multiple pairs of file and key can be given in a single command line.

--force
Allow rekeying of even files whose content is not currently available. Use with caution.
--batch
Enables batch mode, in which lines are read from stdin. Each line should contain the file, and the new key to use for that file, separated by a single space.
-z
Makes the --batch input be delimited by nulls instead of the usual newlines.
