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.
