One of the things that trip many people up is that Subversion doesn't
know you've moved something until you tell it you have.

I've seen people do this from the command line using rename/move/mv
(depending upon platform, or in a GUI by simply clicking on a
directory and moving it elsewhere.

You have to tell Subversion, you're moving the files. In TortoiseSVN,
you right click on the file, move it, and it'll show you a menu with
items like "SVN Move versioned items here". From the command line, you
have to use "svn move". If you're in Eclipse, you must use the Team
menu item to move things around.

Did you simply move the files from one directory to another, or did
you use the Subversion commands to do this?
