Comment #3 on issue 1235 by More intelligent handling of rename operations.

Note that for the git world a good starting point is 'git diff --full-index -M master'. As well as mentioning renames, it actually gives the diff between the before- and after-move paths. (Currently in v1.5, you can't upload such a diff into reviewboard: it sees a diff between "a/old/path" and "b/new/path", and complains that "old/path (revision )" doesn't exist in the repository.)

I currently have a 600kB diff in review that reduces to 100kB with -M. It involves moving some 40 files, each with small differences as well as the move (primarily the class name).

Resolving this may also link to <a href="";>issue 1066</a>.
