Rename ID of package

Sep 21, 2011 at 6:48 AM


What is best pratice way to change the ID of a package.

I am thinking in lines of somehow to migrate automatically to the new package id instead of the old one. I've started using a LONG name on an internal feed, and wish to change it to a shorter name.

Is it making the old package depend on the new packages and then just upgrade? or is it the "hard" of uninstalling the old packages and installing the new?

Making the old depend on the new is a pretty decent practice.

I guess that changing the package XSD to allow for this is to much work with looking at how often it may occur ... 

then creating new packages and change dependencies it is :)
