Hello

I would like to move a local git repository to a different location. How can I tell EGit that the path to the repository has changed?

Thanks for your help!

Greetings
Christoph

If the whole repo is inside one project you should be able to right-click and use Refactor->Move. This
is rarely the case in which case you need to delete the repository, move it using a tool outside
eclipse and re-import projects from the new location.

It's Remove Repository from View in the Git Repositories View. NOT Delete.
