	/* dst is recorded as a modification of src.  Are they so
	 * different that we are better off recording this as a pair
	 * of delete and create?
	 * There are two criteria used in this algorithm.  For the
	 * purposes of helping later rename/copy, we take both delete
	 * and insert into account and estimate the amount of "edit".
	 * If the edit is very large, we break this pair so that
	 * rename/copy can pick the pieces up to match with other
	 * files.
	 * On the other hand, we would want to ignore inserts for the
	 * pure "complete rewrite" detection.  As long as most of the
	 * existing contents were removed from the file, it is a
	 * complete rewrite, and if sizable chunk from the original
	 * still remains in the result, it is not a rewrite.  It does
	 * not matter how much or how little new material is added to
	 * the file.
	 * The score we leave for such a broken filepair uses the
	 * latter definition so that later clean-up stage can find the
	 * pieces that should not have been broken according to the
	 * latter definition after rename/copy runs, and merge the
	 * broken pair that have a score lower than given criteria
	 * back together.  The break operation itself happens
	 * according to the former definition.
	 * The minimum_edit parameter tells us when to break (the
	 * amount of "edit" required for us to consider breaking the
	 * pair).  We leave the amount of deletion in *merge_score_p
	 * when we return.
	 * The value we return is 1 if we want the pair to be broken,
	 * or 0 if we do not.

	 * happens, we merge the broken pieces back into one
	 * modification together if the pair did not have more than
	 * this much delete.  For this computation, we do not take
	 * insert into account at all.  If you start from a 100-line
	 * file and delete 97 lines of it, it does not matter if you
	 * add 27 lines to it to make a new 30-line file or if you add
	 * 997 lines to it to make a 1000-line file.  Either way what
	 * you did was a rewrite of 97%.  On the other hand, if you

	 * if you add 3 lines to it to make a new 100-line file or if
	 * you add 903 lines to it to make a new 1000-line file.
	 * Either way you did a lot of additions and not a rewrite.
	 * This merge happens to catch the latter case.  A merge_score

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
