Transferring ownership, old url time limit?

If someone transfers their repo to my account, how long is the previous url valid for? Will I eventually have to find and change all old forum posts and links to point to the new url, or is the old url valid indefinitely?

Re: Transferring ownership, old url time limit?

I am not 100% sure, but as far as I know that URL just remains intact until the other person creates a new repo with the same name on your account.

 

So if person A (other person) transfers the repo to person B (you), github.com/persona/repo will redirect to github.com/personb/repo until person A creates a fork or repo that is called github.com/persona/repo.
