RE: Re: [Subclipse-dev] [svnclientadapter] Generating a diff for a renamed file as a full delete-create

Mark,

Thank you for your reply. I am considering working around this issue by manually generating the diff for 'added' files to always contain the standard header and each line in the file prefixed with '+'. Do you see any potential issues with this approach?

Thanks,

Robert
