Re: command to verify move history

Thanks for all the answers here. It appears that my colleague, who is a
competent developer, is not doing something needed to carry over history
for his moves.

Let me ask this: if I move "path1/A" to "path2/A" and then rename
"path2/A" to "path2/B" before doing a commit, is Subversion smart enough
to know that a "delete path1/A, add path2/B with history from path1/A"
operation has occurred? Or must I first commit my "svn move path1/A
path2/A" operation before I perform a "svn rename path2/A path2/B"?
