Can I change the group portion of the git path name in GitLab?
I’m using GitLab v6.2.4.
I have a group named Face Recognition and a project facedetect under it, whose git path name is
git@mygitlab:face-recognition/facedetect.git. For some reason, I want to change the git path name to be
git@mygitlab:facerecognition/facedetect.git, that is to say, remove the minus punctuation
