It seems it's possible to change label's name, but I can't figure out how.

I found the label list in the board preferences, but the names aren't editable, they turn from grey to black when my mouse comes over, but that's all.

How can I change those labels' names?

Oh, and clicking the name doesn't do anything. – LIman Nov 16 '11 at 9:01

It seems that you don't have the permission to change them.

Try to take a look at the ownership of the board, you should be a co-owner or the creator to be able to have them changed.

You're right, I'm not the owner of the board. Thanks – LIman Nov 16 '11 at 9:41
When trello.com/card/board/let-any-board-member-edit-label-names/… goes live, all board members will be able to edit board labels – Daniel LeCheminant Dec 1 '11 at 14:44
