    Does anybody know of a way to rename projects that use Source Control?

    If you use the "save as" feature in the file menu, it detaches the project from your linked repository, and I don't believe there's a way to "re-link" it, if you will.

    I suppose I could just create a new repository, and lose my push history, but that wouldn't be my preference.

    Thanks,

    Just rename the project directory.

    By golly, you're right. Simply renaming the .yyp project file does the trick.
    I'm glad they made it that simple.

    Thanks @FrostyCat
