Write technote on how to rename a package

    Details

      Description

      On recommendation from Tim Jenness, I'm writing a short technote describing how to rename an LSST package, based on my experience from DM-7915.

            I'll add something about trying to get the attention of other developers with work in branches, but I'm confused about your comment here:

            you still have to include instructions on how to recover if the fork happened and the branch was out of date on github beforehand.

            I was lucky enough to not have to deal with that. Perry Gee, did you use git to recover your not-pushed branch? Can you write something up about that for the tech note?

            There's a whole section of the document devoted to this topic, with step-by-step instructions.

            Oh, of course there it is. (I clearly need a second cup of coffee). So: sorry, and never mind about that part.

            I've added a section about developer coordination. Please take a look and tell me what you think. I also tweaked a bit of the text to clarify whether something was to be done on github or on the local clone.
