If you move a file in a repo's file structure, the history that is shown on GitHub is only that of the file in the current location.
Are you sure about that? I thought this was only the case if you "mv" rather then "git mv" a file. If you git mv a file, git keeps the history links, but I have no idea if github honors it.
And I sit corrected: https://github.com/GarysExperiments2014/GitTests
git log --follow shows the full history on the file I made sure to 'git mv' while the file I made sure to break the history on has been lost.
Github loses the history on both of them.
