--- Comment #4 from Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton <lkcl at lkcl.net> ---
ah, right.  the idea was to *restore* the mistaken replacement of
the word "OpenPOWER" with the word "POWER", rather than "continue
the process of removing the word OpenPOWER and replacing it with
the word POWER".

i've performed a force-master-push reverting the changes, and have
locked everybody out of the git repository who has write-access.

this is because if anyone tries to commit on top of the mistaken
master branch, it will cause massive confusion and corruption of
the git repository.

if it was only one or two files i would have simply reverted the
change.  50+ files, it's best to force-master-push.

one of the reasons why the name may not be changed is because i have
already made public announcements pointing to the directory
https://libre-soc.org/openpower, and, also there is an "underlay"
on the wiki pages with the openpower-isa contents.

alain you have write access to the gitolite-admin repository, can
i leave it with you to confirm that nobody else has checked out the
repository beyond this location:


if they have, they will need to either:

* DESTROY their checked out copy of the repository     OR
* RENAME the master branch to point to the new master

and only then, once they have informed you of that, then AND ONLY
then should their name be re-added to the gitolite-admin conf
file, in this section:

repo libreriscv
    RW+     =   admin adminbigmac
    R       =   @all

that includes yourself: you should *ALSO* destroy the current checked
out copy of the repo or rename your local master branch, and only
then re-add yourself to the "RW+" list of users for the libreriscv

anyone who has NOT done a "git pull" since 
Mon, 10 May 2021 18:23:01 +0100 (18:23 +0100)
will be absolutely fine.  they will *NOT* need to destroy their checked
out repository or perform the manual master branch rename.
