Go to the project in question an open the " Settings" page. Change the
Repository name and click on the
Rename button. Github will present you with a warning dialog. If you're renaming a repository that multiple people use you'll want to make sure you've given them a heads up.
Next you need to drop and re-add the remote on your local copy. Or remove and re-clone, but this is the git way:
git remote rm origin git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:<USER>/<REPO>.git git pull # this will provide an error, fix: git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/<BRANCH> <BRANCH> git pull
Swap in your details for
<BRANCH> and you should be good to go!
