|Re: [mdt.dev] [mdt-ocl.dev] MDT Project names for Indigo|
Thanks for that. I've changed the Portal metadata and already see some improvements.
Team: please keep an eye out for places where an MDT prefix to OCL remains and seems clumsy and removable.
I immediately see one - "MDT OCL mailing list", but perhaps that's stuck in my mail tool.

So, it should be possible for any project leads that wish to change the "short name" for their project to do so via the Portal.
If you notice any pages that aren't displaying the right (updated) value, let me know and I'll bring it to Wayne's attention...
