I think advertising this functionality as "renaming" is a bit
misleading, don't you think? Most people will probably think of rename
operations in the context of version control as part of a file's
history, i.e. it should be traceable which revision had what name.
I would probably rather describe the above as "file name aliasing" or
something like that but then I'm not a native speaker...
Just my 2c.
Congrats on the new release and the repackaged cvs manual in any case.
Pity the one in the Wiki is still too garbled to comfortably link
against... at which end would this have to be fixed anyway? Are you by
now maintaining the manual in the Wiki (i.e. it could be fixed by anyone
with sufficient access to the Wiki) or will you regenerate from source
whenever you make changes (i.e. it has to be fixed in the converter script)?
