=head1 NAME

public-inbox-init - create or reinitialize a public-inbox

=head1 SYNOPSIS

B<public-inbox-init> [OPTIONS] NAME INBOX_DIR HTTP_URL ADDRESS [ADDRESS..]

=head1 DESCRIPTION

Creates an empty public-inbox or reinitializes an existing one.
It updates C<~/.public-inbox/config> by creating a
C<[publicinbox "NAME"]> section where
C<publicinbox.NAME.inboxdir> is C<INBOX_DIR>,
C<publicinbox.NAME.url> is C<HTTP_URL>, and
C<publicinbox.NAME.address> is C<ADDRESS>.  Multiple addresses
may be specified for inboxes with multiple addresses.

=head1 OPTIONS

=over

=item -V, --version FORMAT_VERSION

Specify C<2> here to use the scalable L<public-inbox-v2-format(5)>
if you have L<DBD::SQLite> installed.

The default is C<1> for the old L<public-inbox-v1-format(5)>,
but C<2> is strongly recommended for scalability if you have
L<DBD::SQLite>.

Default: C<1>

=item --indexlevel <basic|medium|full>

Controls the indexing level for L<public-inbox-index(1)>

See L<public-inbox-config(5)> for more information.

Default: C<full>

=item -S, --skip-epoch

For C<-V2> (L<public-inbox-v2-format(5)>) inboxes only, this option
allows archivists to publish incomplete archives with newer
mail while allowing "0.git" (or "1.git" and so on) epochs to be
added-after-the-fact (without affecting "git clone" followers).

Default: unset, no epochs are skipped

=back

=head1 ENVIRONMENT

=over 8

=item PI_CONFIG

Used to override the default C<~/.public-inbox/config> value.

=back

=head1 LIMITATIONS

This tool predates NNTP support in public-inbox and is missing
C<newsgroup> and many of the options documented in
L<public-inbox-config(5)>.  See L<public-inbox-config(5)> for all the
options which may be applied to a given inbox.
