A file that has been deleted is ignored. Perhaps we want to allow parsing of also deleted files. One argument for that is that you want Blame statistics to reflect the state at a given moment. This is not the case now because say that you have contributed a lot to file Foo. If you then deleted the file those contributions are deleted from history.

However, including deleted files in statistics will have huge impact. That is clear. I'm not sure how though. But one could imagine that stats curves will be have more large jumps (down). Also there is a possibility of file name clashes. I file can be deleted, and another file later created with that name. Also it is not clear how to handle copy and moves when including deleted files in history. Yes there are many questions, and the purpose of this ticket is to give forum for these discussions.
