RE: Determining when a file has been copied

 Alternatively you 'might' be able to write a hook script that does this for
you when the file is checked out. I don't know anything abou the hook
script system thou, but it's a possible direction.

There's no simple way. A non-simple way is to look through a verbose log
for messages like

   A destination (from source:rev)

where source is the file that interests you, and destination is where it was
copied. It would be nice if messages like this showed up when you asked for
a log of source, but you'll only see them when you look at the log for the
destination: so you need to scan the log for the whole repository to find
them all.
