I'd use git for that. Git does copy/move tracking even if you use the
system's cp/mv commands (_and_ is efficient in its operation).

Basically, you do once
at the top and then repeatedly use
git add .
git commit -m "some commit message" -a
to update your local repository. When you want to know what happened,
use something like
git-diff --name-status -M -C -R -B ":/some commit message"

Something like that. Copy/Rename detection happens only when doing
git-diff, but the checkins are efficient nevertheless (identical file
contents don't take up additional space regardless of what file they
happen to occur).

Git defaults to using a single local repository .git in the top
directory. While you can use a file:// URL for the subversion
repository, too, you can't really share this with the same tree as the
