Git does not track file renames. It just add the new name and removes
the old name. The C version tries to track content moves during various
operations, e.g. merge and log (on demand). There is code in JGit to
perform rename detection, but it is only invoked in a few places yet and
not from EGit.
Adding the rename/rewrite detected to EGit is probably not that hard, in
fact it should be trivial, but you also want it to be shown in a
meaningful way, which leaves some opportunity for creativity since that
could probably be implemented in more than one way. There are also many
places where you want it.
Quickdiff (only Follow, not Rewrite)
History (Follow and Rewrite, how to annotate?)
Compare Version (Rename only, Different names, recursive rename detection?)
Commit Dialog (Both, how to annotate?)
Decorators (how to decorate)
This bug talks about the history view:
I added separate bugs for the others too, since they need unique
solutions in the UI.
