Repository Identifier should be frozen
|Assignee:||Jean-Philippe Lang||% Done:|
I'd like to suggest/discuss the idea of "freezing" the repository identifier just like it's done for the project identifier, i.e. after a project has been created, the identifier cannot be changed anymore.
From what I understand in the comments to #779, the identifier is used in URLs and for wiki links. Both would benefit from the identifier being frozen like for projects as this would prevent users from inadvertently breaking existing links.
What do you think? Would be happy to provide a patch if you share my opinion.

I don't think it would make sense to make this a configurable setting. In my point of view, changing identifiers after a repo has been created can lead to broken links and confusion among users. I don't see a benefit of having changeable identifiers, so I'd say no configuration option.
