Different display style for moved-only files in a Pull Request
first things first - we are extremly happy with your great tools.
Nevertheless, we found some small enhancement, that would us (as possibly many others as well) ease the way we deal with pull-requests.
While acting agile and doing some major refactorings (from time to time) we have the need to move many files around (e.g. renaming / restructuring of the package structur in java) Those files are untouched / unchanged - just moved!
It would be very helpful, if those files could be displayed in a different (maybe collapsible) section, eg. in the form of:
/old/path/of/the/file.ext -> /new/maybe/deeper/path/of/the/file.ext
There is no need
- to display the whole content of the old file in red indicating the deletion and
- later displaying the whole (identical) content of the new file in green indication the insertion.
This display is super-fine for changes.
Advantages could be:
- moved-only just don't distract from reviewing the real changes.
- faulty move would be more easily detectable when the involved paths are close together
Thanks for a short reply
