It does understand that the same asset may be represented by multiple files (as commonly happens with support files, and sometimes with references and tests as they're being worked on) and it tracks each file independently, but they're all considered the same asset.

In this specific case, when I checked in a new test that had the same
name as an existing one, Shepherd seemed to treat it as a new version
of the existing test, even though I didn't delete the existing test.
I suggest that in this, it's probably better for Shepherd to complain
loudly and ignore the new file rather than the old one as long as
there's a naming conflict.

(Does Shepherd have a bug tracker?  I don't see a component for it at
<https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/describecomponents.cgi?product=Testing>.)
