Refactoring & renaming

Hi all,

 

I've been going though some work one of our new developers did and cleaning some things up.

 

I had to rename a whole lot of objects.  It seems like the central repository doesn't really allow this..

 

The first problem I hit was that Ds wouldn't let me rename a checked-out object.  This implies to me it is impossible to maintain any history once I rename an object.  After I rename it I have tried checkout without replacement and then check-in, but this seems to leave me with two objects.

 

I'm thinking I must of missed something here; this is not an abnormal operation;  how should I approach this ?  Is there a 'best practice' process for refactoring/renaming ?

 

 

Thanks,

Leigh.
