Changing the app repository name, what else do I need to do?

Hello everyone,

My app has already been available on F-Droid for some time. I plan to change its GitHub repository name from mysuperduperapp_android to mysuperduperapp.

Since all app links on F-Droid (issue tracker, source code, changelog) currently point to the current repository name, I wonder how this is handled on F-Droid’s side. What else do I need to do besides renaming the repository?

Thanks in advance!

GitHub actually will automatically redirect them for some period of time, you should still update the F-Droid metadata for it however.

Where do I update the F-Droid metadata?

in the respective file for your app: metadata · master · F-Droid / Data · GitLab
