I have some further git-annex integration here:


In particular, when you use C-c C-a F to visit the attachments directory in
dired, locally available annexed files will be green, and locally unavailable
files will be red.  Use @g to get unavailable files from another reachable
repository, and @d to drop them from your local repository.

If you open the file in Emacs and type C-x C-q to make it editable, this will
automatically do a "git annex edit", and when the buffer dies it will "git
annex add" the new version and then do a "git commit" automatically.
