This is a bug because the blacklist names rules changes without someone first renaming Eliott's oops project. The fix is to rename the project to not conflict. I am treating this as a question so that I can ask an admin to rename the project.

I discovered this ealier this year when I was fixing licenses. I should have asked the project to be renamed a few months ago.

The 'oops' project must be renamed to 'opps-report'. We cannot use the UI since the name is taken by the app. We need to use SQL to fix this.

UPDATE Product SET name = 'oops-report' WHERE name = 'oops';
