#103619 How to rename a project


It has come to my attention that there is a similar
project with basically the same name. The name of my
project is "beescript" and the other project (not
hosted in sourceforge) is "BEE script". This will
likely cause confusion in the future if my project ever
gains any attention. So the question is, how do I
rename my project? Should I just start a new project
with a new name and ask for the removal of the existing

    Please advise: What name do you want? If you haven't done
    anything with the project yet, creating a new one from
    scratch is less effort.

    Coming up with a nice name for a scripting language seems to
    be pretty difficult, so I'm not going to even try. I googled
    for "funscript" and didn't find any relevant hits. So I
    guess that is as good a name as any.

    I've made one release of the project and I've been using CVS
    for version control. I'd like to migrate to Subversion, so I
    guess now would be a good time to do that. So what shall I
    do? Shall I create a new project "funscript" or is there a
    way to change "beescript" into "funscript".

    The "nobody" above/below is indeed me the project admin. I'm
    still waiting for a suggestion on how to proceed.

    You should register a new project at this time with the new
    UNIX name.
