The script applies common rules for everybody, as it was defined in T43: Decide how to organize projects.

I agree that "VisualEditor" is better. However, project owners can just apply changes like this after the migration. You will be able to fine tune the names of your projects, following the naming guidelines, or proposing improvements to the guidelines.

Oh. After I thought that we had all agreed on what would be done in that task, the decision got reversed. :-( No wonder I was confused.

Well, if there is a better decision we have still time to change it. What agreement are you referring to? That task got just too long with too many topics mixed.

I was going by T43#641 and related comments, and didn't see T43#653 and later comments. Happy to stand by T43#653 and then change it afterwards.
