Subject [allura:tickets] #5775 Allura Code Viewer: provide "copied from" link in history view
Date Mon, 05 Aug 2013 10:55:57 GMT
I have a few questions about Git implementation. 
Currently we've done it with two limtations:

Firstly, it works only if in a commit only one file was renamed. Git doesn't handle renames
separately - this is just file deletion and file creation. So now  when you go to file history
it tries to find commit where file with current name was created and some other file deleted
- then it is probably rename. To fix one-file-in-commit issue, we have to compare contents
of the files and diffs and this can be time consuming. Do we have to or current implementation
will be enough?

Secondly, it doesn't show renames for folders (it works for files in the folder though). This
seems to be possible to implement but logic will be very tricky. Do you need to show renames
of folders?

This is one of several tickets I am creating to log what I feel are shortcomings in the new
(Allura) code viewer relative to the old (ViewVC) code viewer. In all of these cases, simply
providing a way for users to continue using ViewVC would be an acceptable workaround.

In ViewVC, if a file or directory had been renamed, then the history view of said file/directory
provided a link at the bottom that allowed one to easily browse the old history of the file/directory
before it has been renamed.  Example (see bottom of page):

This is a critical feature for being able to visualize the history of a repository.
