I have two repositories. tools and flof. I want to merge flof into tools (and 
flof will be deleted after that) while keeping history intact. Of course I've 
googled that and found a number of different solution which all seem to be 
pretty komplex, so I just tried it myself. It seems to work.... are there any 
problems with my approach?

~/software/tools.test (git)-[master] % git remote add fl ~/flof

~/software/tools.test (git)-[master] % git fetch fl

>From /home/florian/flof
 * [new branch]      master     -> fl/master
 * [new branch]      v2-rewrite -> fl/v2-rewrite

/software/tools.test (git)-[master] % git checkout -b import fl/master
Branch import set up to track remote branch master from fl.
Switched to a new branch 'import'

Doing some mkdir und git mv for reorganisation.

~/software/tools.test/flof (git)-[import] % git commit -m "Reorganize flof."
[import a00ab54] Reorganize flof.
 152 files changed, 0 insertions(+), 0 deletions(-)
 rename {doc => flof/doc}/common.rst (100%)
 rename {doc => flof/doc}/conf.py (100%)

~/software/tools.test/flof (git)-[import] % git checkout master
Switched to branch 'master'

~/software/tools.test (git)-[master] % git merge import
Auto-merging .gitignore
CONFLICT (add/add): Merge conflict in .gitignore
Automatic merge failed; fix conflicts and then commit the result.

Resolving the conflict.

~/software/tools.test (git)-[master|merge] % git add .gitignore

~/software/tools.test (git)-[master|merge] % git commit -m "Merged flof."
[master b8c85be] Merged flof.

~/software/tools.test (git)-[master] % git remote rm fl

Are thery any problems with this procedure? The history seems to intact. I'm 
quite unsure since still being a git beginner.
