You don't need the "pkg-" prefix if alioth is the main host for upstream
development. The "pkg-" prefix is required for projects whose goal are
to maintain the Debian package of a software which is hosted somewhere

Then I did the wrong thing for the dict-common project naming it as pkg-dict-common since it is debian specific and alioth will become the main host for development.

Can a project be renamed or if not possible, removed, so I can create a new one with the right naming? All the previous stuff at sf used dict-common and I would like the migration to be as less confusing as possible.
