I am working on a project (Maxima) hosted at Sourceforge. I am thinking about changing some labels. For example, if a label is now "Foo Bar" I might want it to be just "Bar". Is there a way to change the text for a label?

I suppose I could find all the items labelled "Foo Bar", label them with "Bar", then delete the "Foo Bar" label. That seems error prone and tedious. Is there a better way?

I looked for a user forum at Sourceforge itself, but didn't find one. Thanks for any advice.

This question came from our site for professional programmers interested in conceptual questions about software development.

You could ask on IRC (#sourceforge on freenode.net): webchat.freenode.net/?randomnick=0&channels=sourceforge – chirlu Aug 28 '13 at 1:04

After asking on #sourceforge (thanks to @chirlu for the hint) it appears the only way to do it automatically is to use the Allura API.
