@Robin Moffatt lakeFS does not have the equivalent of mv. The main reason for this is that S3 itself does not support this operation. The equivalent in S3 is to perform a copy and delete. We played around with the idea and realized the complexities this creates far outweighs its advantages, mostly due to the fact that this flow cannot be implemented atomically with the KV interface we provide today

ok, thanks. I wonder if we should add this to https://docs.lakefs.io/faq.html or maybe this from @Or Tzabary https://github.com/treeverse/lakeFS/pull/5139#issuecomment-1412069102
