Rename file and then move them to a new package

Postby vogella » Sun Aug 05, 2007 7:57 am


If I rename a file then I have to commit this change before I'm able to move them to another package / folder.

Would it be possible to change this? If forces me to commit during a half-way operation and I prefer to commit a consistent change to my repository.

Best regards, Lars

Hi Lars,
this is a limitation of svn, so it is not possible to fix this in subversive.
The SVN-Team is working hard, to implement an atomic rename, which probably will fix this issue, however at the moment this is a limitation in the svn workingcopy.

Maybe you can move your file and rename it on the fly instead of rename and then move.
you can use the svn mv statement for this
hope that helps,
