Subject svn commit: r1495084 - /subversion/site/publish/docs/release-notes/1.8.html
Date Thu, 20 Jun 2013 16:30:28 GMT
Author: julianfoad
Date: Thu Jun 20 16:30:27 2013
New Revision: 1495084

In the 1.8 release notes, explicitly point out that a local move is not
preserved as a move when committed, as I feel some readers would have
optimistically assumed it meant more than it did.

* publish/docs/release-notes/1.8.html
  (svn-status-info-moves, moves): Tweak and expand.
