It's probably not been reiterated outside the implementation detail
discussions for the OpenDev Gerrit/Git transition, but unlike prior
project renames we'll actually be instituting rewrites and redirects
on the Git URLs so the impact should be much reduced. While doing
the renames once during the main transition does require more
up-front planning, it would actually be "easier" on the community at
large than kicking the namespace explosion can down the road.
