NAME

       git-annex-renameremote - changes name of a special remote

SYNOPSIS

       git annex renameremote name|uuid|desc newname

DESCRIPTION

       Changes the name that is used to enable a special remote.

       Normally  the  current  name  is  used  to  identify  the  special remote, but its uuid or
       description can also be used.

       This is especially useful when an old special remote used a name, and now you want to  use
       that  name  for  a  new special remote. git annex initremote won't let you create a remote
       with a conflicting name, so rename the old remote first.

        git annex renameremote phone lost-phone
        git annex initremote phone ...

       This only updates the name that git-annex has stored for use by git annex enableremote. It
       does  not  update the git config stanza for the special remote to use the new name, but of
       course you can edit the git config if you want to rename it there.
