On the same page, it does say the following, although I can see that it
take some before the request goes through; and, iirc, it can mean that
user checkout needs to have the same moves done.
" Can things be moved within the repository, while still preserving the
" history of these files?
" Under normal circumstances, as an end-user, there is no means to move
" files, directories, or modules within a repository and still preserve
" history on the included files. However this may be accomplished by
" the SourceForge.net team to perform such a move or rename on your
" behalf. The SourceForge.net team will, upon request, move files (or
" directories, or modules) directly within the repository, thus
" historical versions of those files.
