Pin DAG with open ends

Hi there :slight_smile:
I have a strategy question: I’m trying to pin a DAG, which also might reference CIDs (via dag-json links) that are not included in the CAR.
I tried using dag import / pin - but that results in long wait time & timeout.

Can I somehow pin that root / these car blocks either way? non-recursively pin all individual CIDs? :confused:

An alternative would be to encode those missing CIDs as string, but then it’s a bit weird workaround and also I’ll loose the ability to click through links in the explorer :thinking:
