Hi, I just tested the rename command and it worked fine for simple renaming tasks. But ... What are the "features" supported by cvs rename? Are there plans to support something like a restructuring of the checked out module by moving ("renaming") a file from one directory to another (something like the mv-command from UNIX)? That's exactly what we would need: restructuring our modules by moving some file to another subdirectory within the module .... I know, that's a difficult task, since cvs is only file-based and not directory based ... Are there plans to support "restructuring" within "cvs rename" ? What's the simplest way to do the task "move one file which is under CVS to another subdirectory"? The cvs history of the file should not get lost or have any discontinuities (something like deleting the file on the old dir in the repo and add it again at the new dir produces something I call "discontinuity": the re-added file does not have any connection within cvs to the deleted file ... cvs log won't give a complete history of the file ...) Thanks Johannes
