Re: [yast-devel] Moving Clients to 'lib' && Keeping the History

git does not track moves/renames. unlike some other versioning tools
like svn or hg, git does not attach any "identity" to a file.

This is about moving code from place A to place B. How Martin did it
made him author of all the code at place B, which I just did not want.
The trick was to do it in more steps.

i don't know what "this move has removed all the history from those new
files" means, but it's probably about a github's shortcoming.

Well, hasn't "removed the history", you can still see it, but developers
usually try `git blame` to find out who and why did something, so it's
not just GitHub. And even if so, we use GitHub, so we somehow have to
take that into account anyway.
