Hello.
I have a file with multiple versions being managed in a repository. I would like to move that file, along with all of its history into a new repository.
Both repositories are local. Basically I'm moving the file from one project to another.

Is this possible?

Thanks.
Adrian

It is possible, but not with EGit. You should read the manpages for git filter-branch ( http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-filter-b ranch.html) and git read-tree ( http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-read-tre e.html) along with the subtree merge strategy ( http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/howto/using- merge-subtree.html).
I tried a similar thing last week, but i didn't succeed in the way i wanted, and so i just deleted the file from one repository and added it in the other.
