Issue #3457 resolved

Renaming Repository

Yitzchok Gottlieb
created an issue

If I re-name a repo from "/RepoName" tp "RepoName" (When I created the project I by mistake added / before the repo name) it tells me "You already have a repository with this name."

    This results from the fact that a repository's slug is generated from its name (which is problematic for a number of reasons). "/RepoName" and "RepoName" produce the same slug, so you won't be allowed to make this change directly. You could, however, make the change indirectly:

    "/RepoName" -> "XXX" -> "RepoName"
