I want to migrate some legacy java code to scala whilst keeping git history 
intact for each file. The idea was to do a very basic conversion first, 
just doing ssyntactical changes first and have git mark it only as a rename 
and go from there.

But already the basic syntax changes push git over the similarity edge, so 
now II have a deleted file, and a new file. My understanding is then that I 
basically loose history as I don't see the full history of the "new" file. 
`git log --follow <file>` doesn't work.

Can I mark file changes manually as a rename? Are there different
