Here are the ones that I have seen ordered from simplest to most difficult.

* The README.md and the repo description say JavaScript Restrictor (JSR) or 
JS-Shield.  This is the easiest to fix without any link breakage.
* The demo website says both jShelter and JShelter.  I am fine with either, but 
we should be consistent.
* The repo is titled JS-Shield. https://pagure.io/JS-Shield/JS-Shield Is there 
a way to rename the repo with pagure?  Would the old link break or would it 
redirect?  Should we do this?
* The browser extension links all say JavaScript Restrictor and link to GitHub. 
 Could these be renamed without breaking links?

Thanks for highlighting this; it is very important to unify under one
name as much (and as soon) as possible -- we are issuing the formal
press release announcing the project shortly, and the funder asked me
last week for what the name of the project will be (I gave jShelter, but
also advised them the press release is coming out soon).


Hello Michael, John,

Thanks for pointing this out. I like JShelter a little bit more than jShelter. 
Are we fine with sticking with JShelter?

My original plan for rebranding was:

1a. Deploy the web https://jshelter.org/
1b. Move repository to JShelter. Ruben, can we rename the repo or do we need to 
create a new one? I tried to find a way but didn't find anything. I also didn't 
find a way to manage the repository like giving commit permissions. Do I have a 
role that can add people to the project?
2. Fix the links in the codebase to point to the rebranded web/repo.
3. Deploy redirects to Github.
4a. Rewrite all strings like JSR, JS Restrictor, JavaScript Restrictor in the 
code base to JShelter.
4b. Change the name of the extension in stores with the 0.6 release: when we 
have new GUI, fingerprint blocker (fpd branch).

Do we want to reshuffle for the press release?
