Rename python-fixtures-git to fixtures-git

Asked by Darragh Bailey on 2018-03-22

Is it possible for someone to rename https://launchpad.net/python-fixtures-git to be https://launchpad.net/fixtures-git, I was following some documentation on setting up a project and misread some advice which was to prefix the project name with 'python-' but didn't spot that was only if the original name of the project was already taken.

I'd very much prefer for python-fixtures-git to be called fixtures-git as that matches the package name on PyPi but I don't see any way to update it.

As the project was only just created in the last few days, I could create a new one but couldn't see how to delete the old one to prevent confusion, it's it easier python-fixtures-git can be deleted and I'll start from scratch.
