Case sensitive in files names

Asked by Slawomir Wojcieszek on 2013-10-16

Hi.
Is it possible to turn off case sensitive for files names in Bazaar?
Now when I change the name of EXAMPLE.FILE to example.file Bazaar tells me that one is missing and one is new.

No, tracking file names including case is a feature.

Right, you have two choices to tell bzr you renamed a file:

- bzr mv EXAMPLE.FILE example.file

  This will tell bzr that the file name changed and do the rename on disk.

- bzr mv --after EXAMPLE.FILE example.file

  This will tell bzr that you did the rename yourself but that the file has now a new name.

'bzr help mv' will give you all the details.

or more generically, and assuming there might be multiple files...

-bzr mv --auto

...or if you are (rightly) cautious ...

-bzr mv --auto --dry-run

...first, just to make sure the changes that will be made are what you are expecting.
