I recently had a package accepted for auto-merge into the General registry (pending the three-day waiting period). It is named
MyProject, the main code is at
src/MyProject.jl, and the
Project.toml file says
name = "MyProject". All of this is consistent with how other packages are formatted, except poking around, I notice that other users have generally named their Github repositories
MyProject.jl as opposed to just
- Does this matter?
- If I rename my repository in Github, will it break the registration?
I ask because I read the following in the General registry readme:
Technically, you can’t rename a package once registered, as this would break existing users. But you can re-register the package again under a new name with a new UUID.
