  • Has anybody use it with Qt Creator?

    P.S. It is like GIT. But vv supports more features like file moving.

    Which git does, too (git mv). Anyway, I don't know about Veracity, I certainly haven't seen a QtCreator plugin for this one. You can check newest Qt Creator sources from git, it is there.

    I am not aware of a veracity plugin. Feel free to contact me if you would consider to work on it. So far Mercurial, Bazaar and clearCase were contributed, so the effort involved seems manageable:)

    Git not supporting file moves/copies is a design decision: Linus argued that moving whole files is just a special case of moving some lines of code from one file to another. Moving/copying lines of code between files needs to be good support well and you get support for moving/copying files around for free.

    I am not sure why git has git mv now... Maybe the support for moving lines of code is not as good as it needs to be;) Or maybe somebody decided that git is not the "backend" that it was supposed to be but a real SCM which needs to cover real use-cases of real users.

    AFAIK, internally nothing changed, git is still data-centric and does not bother itself with filenames too much (code is stored under pointers, not by file name as in SVN). So most probably git mv simply automates the standard git way of moving, that is:
    @
    git rm file-to-move
    git add new/path/to/file-to-move
    @
