Shifting my git repo up a folder

My SOFA Statistics git repo was in a location that made sense at the time but became increasingly annoying. And I needed to restructure things anyway to prepare for snap packaging. Time for a shift.

Step 1 – shift existing .git folder and .gitignore
Step 2 – shift all the folders and content
Step 3 – git mv to relocate all folders and files relative to new .git location so git recognises that the files are the same but relocated i.e. will keep all the history
