In EGit, when copying a file over an existing managed file with
copy/paste, the file becomes ignored is this an issue, or "by design"?

Example: file "foo.txt" in project A is managed. The file "foo.txt" in
project B (also managed) is copied with CTRL-C, and pasted over
"foo.txt" in project A - the question "Do you want to replace..." is
answered with "Y".

I then have to add the file foo.txt again.

I can log an issue if you want.

The underlying reason is a bug in the eclipse framework:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=269067: It sends a delete
event to the MoveDeleteHook because it detects that a new resource replaces
the old one. Btw., this does not happen if the copied resource was once
copied from the other one, because eclipse tracks local history.

I wonder that we do not yet have one. It would be great if you opened one,
we could then link it to the existing framework bug.

Thanks,
Stefan
