Renaming a namespace

Hi there

We're refactoring some custom content models, standardising on naming conventions, etc. As part of this we'd like to rename a custom namespace. Unfortunately we're getting errors on attempting to apply an aspect that references the renamed namespace to the effect that the aspect doesn't exist. In the log the error references the aspect using its original namespace. I had a look in the database and noted that:

- Table alf_namespace contains entries for the original and renamed namespace.
- Table alf_qname contains QNames for the aspects that reference the original and renamed namespace.

I'm guessing that renaming namespaces isn't just a matter of renaming the URI in the content model definition XML. Does anyone know how to do this?

Many thanks
