Merge requests: allow to add comments to moved files
Problem to solve
Currently it is not possible to comment on files that were moved in GitLab.
This feature would be important for us, because we are establishing a new workflow to move package-related files from one subdir to another once the package reach a certain feature set. We would have a final merge request in the move, where everybody can look at the files and discuss if the package is ready for the new directory or not, and leave comments if they spot something. But having comments on moved files is currently not possible, therefore we will need to use some sort of workaround until gitlab supports this feature.
I suggest to make it possible to show a moved file's contents with an additional click in the "Changes" tab of the merge requests page. Then allow placing comments, just like in other parts of diffs.
If this gets implemented, please make it available in the FOSS version of GitLab.
