Thanks for the pointers.

If I understand correctly, WC to WC copy/rename does not add mergeinfo in
our case, because the source folder does not have any.
That seems to be change that has been commited as a result of the
discussion you pointed out.

Still, I can't get from the archives why a URL to URL rename does add
mergeinfo, although the folder to be renamed does not have any mergeinfo
props itself.
But maybe I'm just not into the details why this can't be changed easily...

Greetings
