Subject [allura:tickets] #5775 Allura Code Viewer: provide "copied from" link in history view
Date Wed, 04 Sep 2013 18:10:44 GMT
Found some issues in production that need further improvement:

* does properly
show "renamed from /trunk/turbojpegl.c" at the bottom of the page, but that link doesn't work.
 It seems that perhaps the path given in the URL has to be present on the latest revision
instead of on the revision specified in the URL? (not sure)
* In SVN, if a folder is copied, e.g.
that shows up properly.  One bug is that you have a trailing slash `?path=/frontend/tags/1.1.0/`
then the rename notice is gone.  Then if you look at file within that folder e.g.
there is no renamed/copied information.  It would be nice if that worked too (although not
essential, if it isn't practical to get that info out of SVN efficiently).
* For git, it seems like the rename is followed automatically.  E.g.
at `[3abb2e]`.  This is nice (better, really), but we should get the rename info out of git
and show it prominently within the table, so that people know it was renamed at that point.
 Also, the file size & view & download links don't work after that point - they need
to use the correct file name from that commit.

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.
