[BUG]: cm fast-export output is wrong when empty folders were moved


Recommended Posts

In case of an empty folder was moved or renamed `cm fast-export` generates incorrect file.

Further use of `git fast-import` produces an error: 

fatal: Path XXX not in branch

Simple repro:

1. Create empty folder

2. Move empty folder to a subfolder

Then use cm fast-export, then git fast-import to observe the error.


My real case was:

1. All files were deleted from a folder

2. And the empty folder was renamed


P.S. I see this as a bug because cm fast-export output is not symmetrical. It contains no file modification commands for when empty directory was created in Plastic but contains file rename commands for when empty directories where renamed.

Hi @Anton,

I'm afraid I cannot reproduce the issue following your steps with the last Plastic version.

Could you attach the fast-export package (or send us via private message) of the issued repo so we can try to reproduce the issue?
