Need friendlier names for hosted repositories
Closed, DuplicatePublic


When Phabricator hosts a repository, the URL used to access that repository contains the 'slug' of the repository, e.g.:


So when I clone that repository (unless I tell git to put it in a different directory name, which is kind of a pain), I get a big directory called "K", when I'd rather have it called something like "myproject-kernel".

Given the restrictions on repository slugs, (all upper case), and the fact that I would like to keep them relatively short, means that this isn't currently possible.

I'm going to merge this into T4175. The solution I'm leaning toward is to let you use:


That will make git clone as anything/ instead of X/. Some considerations in T4175, mostly around the vague danger of having multiple (or infinite) canonical paths.
