When a file is renamed, the git history for that file is not linked to the previous file name.
When the following is executed:
- git checkout my_repo
- git mv ./my_repo/my_OLD_filename.rnd ./my_repo/my_NEW_filename.rnd
- git commit
- git push
The git history for "my_OLD_filename.rnd" is visible before commit X
The git history for "my_NEW_filename.rnd" is visible starting with commit X
Connect the git history for "my_OLD_filename.rnd " and "my_NEW_filename.rnd"
