Does changing the name of a project's driver affect repository access?

Asked by Max Bossino on 2009-03-11

Hi,

The Mira Core Development Team (https://launchpad.net/~mira-core-development-team) is the Maintainer and Driver of the Mira Groupware project (https://launchpad.net).

At the moment, the name of the group is quite long so the repository represented by lp:mira inevitably has a long URI: https://code.launchpad.net/~mira-core-development-team/mira/trunk/

I am considering changing the name of the driver to something shorter, such as mira-core or mira-team, but I presume this would also change the URI of the repository referred to by lp:mira. Does this mean that developers who have branches checked out from the old URI (even if accessed via lp:mira) will need to branch again from the new URI, or would the solution be as simple as pushing their changes to the new URI with a command such as:

  bzr push --remember https://code.launchpad.net/~mira-core/mira/trunk/

Thank you in advance.

They would have to push --remember and pull --remember with the new URI, as these locations are recorded separately.

Can you help with this problem?
