A very simple question.
Is it possible to make Subversion keep file history after move or rename?
I've played around with a sample repository. And it appeared that the history got lost after the file was renamed or moved to another folder. I was using TortoiseSVN "Rename" and "Move versioned file" commands.
After the operation completes, the log file contains only one message about file addition.
I extensively use code refactoring in my project, which is all about moves and renames.
It is very disappointing to lose vital history information because of a file name or location changed.
