I have a folder containing many files of the form svs_a.png, svs_b.png, svs_xyz.png, svs_something.png, ... svs_final.png. These are all different versions of the same file named according to the bad old "rename each version" system. The folder has now become too cluttered though, and I'm feeling like an idiot for not using a proper VCS from the start. I'd like to pull these all into a git repo now, and it would be great if I could pull each of these into the repo as different versions of the same file. Is there a way to make git do that?
There's also a few files named svs_color_a.png, ... svs_color_final.png which I'd like to store in a different branch of the repo (say named "color").
