move refactoring and subversion

Hi,

I was just trying to move some files around and got a message asking me whether I want to schedule newly added files for addition to Subverion. This message makes me a bit uneasy. These aren't new files. I don't want to loose any prior change history.

So, how does IDEA 5 handle move refactoring with Subversion? Does it do a delete followed by and add, or does it isseue a proper move?

It does move the files properly.

IDEA does handle them this correctly. Currently, Subversion doesn't fully support renames at the moment. It's targetted for subversion 1.4 as issue 898. A rename is currently done as a copy and then a delete which preserves the version history when tracing back from the new file name / location to the old one.
