I started a project repo on codeplex and haven't publicly published it yet. I realized that the name I gave to it is not appropriate and would like to change the name of the project before publicly releasing it (they have a 30 day deadline). The name of the directory that hg clone needs, i.e., dirname in is ok, but the project shows up in a different name in codeplex, and that is the name I want to change. Is this possible?

You can change the name in the URL at any time using the field on the "Edit Project Summary & Details" page. This even adds a redirect for you and you can do it after the project has ben published.
