If I rename my account and repo will it still keep all the stars and other data?

Solved! Go to Solution.

Hello,

I created a repo several months ago to verify the idea. As I saw interest and some amount of stars I decided to make it more serious. As a consequence, I rebranded the whole product (the codebase is still the same, I just changed the name). The url of the repo consists of account name and repo name. If I change both of them will the renamed repo keep all kudos it earned?

Thanks!

For those who are interested in this question.

I already renamed account and repo, both. All the stats are the same, so no any problems.
