Thank you very much Bob, I now understand the difficulty. So I will request the creation of another project and we'll move all our discussions there (while keeping the existing one for archival reasons).

The problem of renaming projects is discussed somewhat in this wiki reference page.

As you can see by reading that documentation the problem is not a simple one.  The reason no one replied is probably that no one had time to dig into the task in the detail that it needs in order to accomplish it.  And I am replying here so that it does not linger longer without a reply.  But at this moment I don't have the time to figure out how to rename a project either.  Plus as the reference says this does not rename the mailing lists nor the web pages.  Those also must be handled manually by non-Savannah Hackers.

Frankly it might be easier to start a new project as a clone of this one.  That might be easiest.  I'll wait and see if anyone else pops in and contributes a better suggestion.

Dear Savannah Admins, I just wanted to push this reminder on this request (one month after the original post there has been no reply).

Dear Savannah administrators,

Is possible to rename the "reproduce" project in Savannah to "Maneage" (Management+Lineage: its the new name of the project)?

I am the administrator of that project, if I can do it myself, I would be grateful if you could guide me on how to do it. If only you can do it, we would appreciate it if you could do it for us.

Ultimately, if its not possible to rename it, can you please make a new project with this name? We will then move all the contents there (git source and issues and tasks and bugs) and later delete the old project. If this is the ultimate solution, I wanted to see if there is a way we can extract all the support/bug/task tracker contents from Savannah? This would greatly simplify importing them to the new project.

Thank you very much,

Mohammad Akhlaghi <makhlaghi>
