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 to
       rename, 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.
