git-annex-transferkeys - transfers keys (deprecated)

git annex transferkeys

This plumbing-level command is used to transfer data, by the assistant in git-annex version 8.20201127 and older. It is still included only to prevent breakage during upgrades.

It is a long-running process, which is fed instructions about the keys to transfer using an internal stdio protocol, which is intentionally not documented (as it may change at any time).
