I don’t use git. Just downloaded a million years ago and compiled, and just keep updating manually. I don’t know much about using git. Aware of it, but don’t use it at all.

What I tend to do is update the references to the files in rancid, then "git/svn/cvs mv" the file, and then when rancid runs at the top of the hour it updated the new file and you retain all the history

I’d like to maintain the config history for some of my switches, but not sure it’s possible. Can I set the switches as down in rancid, re-ip them, then mv the switch config directories to the new IP address and turn them back up? I’m guessing it’s probably not that easy…
