I have registered a project which now has broadened
scope. What can I do in order to rename the project ?

Each project hosted on SourceForge.net has two names. The
first name is called the descriptive name; it is used solely
for cosmetic purposes and is displayed on each page for the
project. The second name is the UNIX name; it is used to
define the URL to the project page, any directories used by
the project, and the hostname for the project web server for
The administrator for a project may change the descriptive
name for a project at any time by using the 'Edit Public
Info' section of the Project Admin page for that project.
The Project Admin page is accessible using the 'Project
Admin' link in the left navbar of the SourceForge.net site
when viewing the summary page for that project.
Once a project has been registered, the UNIX name for that
project may not be changed. If you must change the UNIX
name for your project, please register a new project under
the desired name, move over any content from the old project
to the new project, then submit a new support request asking
to have the old project removed (please include the UNIX
name for that project). In the event that your project has
a CVS repository which will need to be moved over to the new
project, please submit a new support request asking for the
repository to be moved to the new project (please include
the UNIX names for both projects).
Do note that tracker data, forums, statistics and other parts of
the project information cannot and will not be moved over to the
new project. They will be lost in this process and you should
weigh that against the benefit of the different UNIX name.
In the event that you should have further questions or
concerns regarding this matter, please re-open this support
request and add a comment.
