It does support storing multiple urls, and will try each until one works. I just don't have much of an interface for adding/removing the urls. If you're using a backend like SHA1, then if you simply run addurl on both urls, and they have the same content, you'll get two annexed files that share a key (and can then delete on of the files). git-annex does record that both urls can be used to obtain the key. So that's one way. Or, you can check out the git-annex branch and look in remote/web/ for the files that contain the urls, as documented at http://git-annex.branchable.com/internals/ > Second question, & it's probably a RTFM, how do I find out what URL is > associated with a file?
