Request for changing the URL of an imported git repository

Asked by Tamer Saadeh on 2012-02-16

I have renamed my repository to match the branch name on Launchpad. However, I am unable to update the import url on the branch page.

Old repository: git://
New repository: git://

Sorry I forgot to mention the name of the branch. It's call lp:~tamersaadeh/bugzilla4. (

Hi if you could go in and abandon the branch that will fix the issue for you and then you can continue on

Sorry, I don't quite understand what you mean by that?

Tamer Saadeh (tamersaadeh) said : #4

I will just revert this change until I know if this is even possible, so I can at least import the new changes.

Sorry, didn't see this question until now. We can easily change the URL, so rename it on GitHub and comment here if you still want it changed.

I have renamed it on GitHub to git://

Thank you very much!

I've updated the URL and checked that the import still works.
