I am very interested in Datalad for supporting research data management in our HPC center in the Netherlands, for instance using Datalad in our supercomputer (with job-queuing done with slurm) or our cloud services.
As a showcase, I am trying it out with a small Gitolite server which is working with git-annex, just for testing purposes. I can create a bare repository from my local machine (git clone git@gitoliteserver:repo) and initialize with ‘git-annex init’, add data to the annex and sync data to this server etc.
How would you be able to initialize an empty repository in this example directly with Datalad? It is not clear to me how to do this with ‘datalad install git@myserver:repo’ or ‘datalad create-sibling git@myserver’ etc?
I would be grateful for some more guidance on how to do this. Thanks.
