The normal unidiff patch format cannot express tree changes
such as copies, renames, moves, and replacements.

But SVN has some support for extensions to this format which were
introduced by git. Use 'svn diff --git' to generate patches using
these extensions, which provide hints about copies and renames.
'svn patch' has some support for these extensions, too.

This feature is experimental and incomplete so it might not work
as you expect. If you use this feature, please provide feedback
and let us know how it works for you.
If you run into problems that look like bugs, please report them.

Why do you need this?


PS: Please do not post here via google groups. It is inconvenient for
those of us who use the normal mailing list because it generates bounces.
Please use our users@ mailing list direcly instead. See here for details:
