Re: moving files in a smarter way

Actually, Peter, it may be that his question is this:

"When a file is moved in the repository, why does the client not move
the file locally when performing an update, instead of downloading the
file from the repository all over again?"

Answer being, that's just how the Subversion libraries implement it.
