How does renaming a Bitbucket git repository affect forked repositories?
I now decide to rename the Bitbucket repository to https://bitbucket.org/username/bettername. Obviously I will need to update my local .git/config so that it points at the new URL.
Now, what happens to all the forks? How will the rename of my repository affect the ability of the contributors to make pull-requests?

Bitbucket handles this well. Your contributors will still be able to make pull requests. They will see the new name of your repository.
