Hi Feodor.

can we please have the ability to change a 'project slug' ? i know it's a silly request and purely a vanity thing .. but it does help when we have a number of projects for a single REPO. Like right now, we create lots of AV projects off the one repo and then manually change the GH repo to one of our forks** which is fine .. but the project slug is still the upstream repo and sometimes we look at that url to see where we are / what project we're in, etc...

Note: my question is similar to this previously asked question .

** : This is also related to a previous question I asked.

    Example scenarios:

    • we have renamed our source repository. (the AV slug is still the old name) and we don't want to delete and loose our build history.
    • we just don't like the random url postpended to the end of slug if an existing slug already exists (eg. we have 2x projects for the same repo .. but might be targetting different appveyor.yml files (dev/prod/etc).

    Yes, we also feel that this is much needed because of growing amount of cases like this. Please watch this GH issue.
