Seems like the plugin had a lot of activity recently. Might be worth looking at again.

I had a few cases for renaming projects, though it is set in stone that we can not rename them so we have adapted :)

Looks like the plugin has been updated?

@Paladox Does the plugin support NoteDB now (or whichever storage we will be using in the next gerrit upgrade?) Thanks.

Nope, not currently :(

Given the plugin does not support NoteDB, there is no point in installing it and I am thus declining this task.

I have filled another task to fulfill renaming repositories in Gerrit, which might or not end up using the plugin. It is a more generic task: T239693: Support renaming repositories in Gerrit

It looks like it also has other limitations that might make the plugin unusable in our install as well.

@hashar it supports NoteDB as of a few weeks ago, but does have some limitations anyways.
