How were the moved/renamed files accounted for ?

In my experience, 'git log -M' did never give the full log of a single file.
I have now discovered that 'git log --follow' does.
Actually the problem is that in "git log -M filename
" the filename
part is path limiter, and is applied (for history simplification) before rename detection, and that is why you need "git log --follow filename
". "git log -M" (no pathspec), or "git log -M directory
" should work as expected.
