It is probably technically possible to change the project name. This hasn't been often requested. This is the first that I remember. But there is no automated way to do so. Doing so manually would be tedious. It would probably take a few tries to get it right. And for the FSF web pages we can only create a new project of the new name there. Sooo... Seems possible but labor intensive and error prone. How important is this to you that it be changed?

This is possible until the project creation is triggered, but after that changing system name may result in breaking things like paths to VCS repositories.

I have a project named Free Caro Online . However I can't edit the system name of the project (I want to change "caro-web" to "free-caro-online") . Is it possible and permitted?
