Dear list,

I’m writing a book with git as control version system.

I have been writing over 300 pages in a file named `my-book.tex`. Now I
realize that I should start it from scratch. So I just `git mv
my-book.tex old-draft.tex`.

The new book will have also a `my-book.tex` file. The file has been
added to git (at I commited some changes) with the name `new-book.tex`.

Would it be problematic in the future if I `git mv new-book.tex

I assume that git history will include the name change and it won’t
change file contents. Is that right or am I missing something?

Many thanks for your help,
