NAME
       git-mv - Move or rename a file, a directory, or a symlink

SYNOPSIS
       git mv <options>... <args>...

DESCRIPTION
       Move or rename a file, directory or symlink.

	   git mv [-v] [-f] [-n] [-k] <source> <destination>
	   git mv [-v] [-f] [-n] [-k] <source> ... <destination directory>

       In the first form, it renames <source>, which must exist and be either a file, symlink or
       directory, to <destination>. In the second form, the last argument has to be an existing
       directory; the given sources will be moved into this directory.

       The index is updated after successful completion, but the change must still be committed.

OPTIONS
       -f, --force
	   Force renaming or moving of a file even if the target exists

       -k
	   Skip move or rename actions which would lead to an error condition. An error happens
	   when a source is neither existing nor controlled by Git, or when it would overwrite an
	   existing file unless -f is given.

       -n, --dry-run
	   Do nothing; only show what would happen

       -v, --verbose
	   Report the names of files as they are moved.

SUBMODULES
       Moving a submodule using a gitfile (which means they were cloned with a Git version 1.7.8
       or newer) will update the gitfile and core.worktree setting to make the submodule work in
       the new location. It also will attempt to update the submodule.<name>.path setting in the
       gitmodules(5) file and stage that file (unless -n is used).
