Subject detection of moved branches for svn-normalizer tool
Date Wed, 22 Jul 2015 11:07:43 GMT

I came across a case where svn-normalizer did remove mergeinfo for a 
branch which was still present but got renamed in one revision.
I understand why it behaves the current way, but maybe in favor of the 
improvements done for handling moves it might also be a good idea to 
have svn-normalizer better handle these scenarios?

For a quick demo/test-case showing the underlying issue, I've attached a 
batch-file (for windows) demonstrating the case.

As you see the resulting mergeinfo for FooProject/FooSDK is:

Running svn-normalizer analyse now reports
/SDK/FooSDK as a deleted branch (in r4) and running svn-normalizer 
normalize --remove-obsoletes would then drop this mergeinfo.

Suggested behavior would be that if a branch is renamed and still 
present on trunk, it would not be removed when using svn-normalizer 
normalize --remove-obsoletes.
