I would like to use git, git-annex, potentially datalad, but we keep our data on a server that connect with the CIFS/SMB protocol, and multiple OS’s (linux, os x, and windows) all have access and write files to it. git-annex requires symbolic links to be understood, but I can’t think of a configuration that would allow those symbolic links to be understood across OS’s. The other option was to use git annex direct mode, but that removes features from git that I would to use. Does git (and not git-annex) work well enough for you guys? Do you only store locally or in the cloud? what sort of strategies are out there for data versioning when you’re actively collecting data?
