In SVN 1.9, moving a file with svn move generates an unexpected patch file when running svn diff. https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=166914 has the work-around which WebKit used to fix this issue in our svn support scripts. Bellow is an example of svn 1.9.4 behavior contrasted with 1.7.19.
Newer versions of svn emit a file index without a body. This seems to violate the intention of an index.
