Yes, but to the same degree e.g. with StGIT I'm free to keep the head of
the old patch series. That does not mean the operation *preserves* the
history, only that the history is still around somewhere in the
repository, however it won't be around in other incarnations of the
repository and it will not be connected in any way to the current
version of the patchset.
Yes, if you are lucky you can figure out the name of the previous
version, but it's like starting development of each new kernel version
by a clean import of the sources.
