Say we have an extension with short-name "fancywidget" which is managed by Company A. The full name of the extension is
Now say Company A drops maintenance of it, and Company B steps up to take over. It's still the "fancywidget" extension, but under new ownership.
Is it safe to rename the extension to
com.b.fancywidget? What are the implications (e.g. for the extension directory, pingback stats, etc.) of doing so?
