'git mv' command integration into browser #239
git-cola is not an editor, neither is git - this is just a point about something git does that git-cola does not (I was testing out not using git and just using git-cola for a period).
If you want to argue about it then you can say that git can already detect renames, so integrated move is not necessary - but that leaves the question of why they implemented mv in git in the first place.
Yeah, it wouldn't hurt to have it integrated. Right now we show moves as a removal and an addition. That'd be acceptable for a first try at integrating "git mv", though, since it at least makes the feature available.
Maybe right-click on a path in the Browser and have an action called "Move..." which pops up a "save file"-like dialog where you can choose the new path. If they right-click a folder then it should be a "Choose folder" dialog that's restricted to new directories only.
