Yup, that time comes to most projects eventually.

I found something here -

Question 3.10 How do I rename a file? actually advices to touch the repository. If this is safe - we have no problem to stop work for a while, rearrange everything, and checkout.

Would you advice this as safe?

We have not used branching and tagging in any way - if this makes any difference.

That's one of the methods described in the manual. It's workable, but you must do a remove/commit on every branch: They must be done in the original location if the branches continue in the new location, and they must be done in the new location if they're obsolete.

Also note that, should the old location be used again for a new file, the users will be confused by the existing version history.
