Is it possible to pull only files belonging to specific remotes?
I have an example
reference-data.dvc file where I’ve added the remote field, specifying “reference-data” as the value. However, when I run
dvc pull -r test-data, then that
reference-data.dvc data is still being pulled. Even though that .dvc file is specifically specified to belong to the “reference-data” remote. I believe this happens because the “test-data” remote wrongly also contains the data that’s in the
reference-data.dvc file. However, even so, I don’t want that pull to happen because I’m only interested in the “test-data”. How can I accomplish this? I wish to pull all files belonging to a specific remote, without having to manually find those .dvc files and pull them explicitly.
This question is spun off from How to configure that specific files should go to different remotes with DVC? - Stack Overflow.
