git-annex v6 is a significant change to how git-annex repositories work, that makes it more suitable for all kinds of workflows and users.

I've been working on v6 all year, and it turned out that improving git's smudge/clean filter interface would make it work a lot better. So, I'm now also working on git itself as part of this project!

My patch series is well on its way to being merged into git, but there are still several months of work ahead to get git-annex v6 repositories working absolutely perfectly.
