Hey all,

Some people have noticed that their package `X` was migrated as `mrt:X` rather than `username:X`. This is because we didn’t know what their Meteor Developer username was, and couldn’t do too much about it.

If you have such a package and would like to take control of it, please head to atmosphere.meteor.com/accounts and associate your MD username with your atmosphere account. Then let me know. I’ll give you access and you can take me off!

On the subject of changing the name of the package to `username:X`:

1. Package renaming will be coming in a future Meteor release. This is the “official” way to do this.

2. You can of course just release the renamed package yourself. But there are two big issues with this:

  a) `mrt migrate-app` won’t know and so many existing users will not get the change.

  b) If any other package `Y:Z` depends on `mrt:X`, then there be big dramas if users have both `username:X` and `Y:Z` installed [1]. 

Thanks everyone, and cheers to package authors for fixing their packages up in a timely fashion, I’m sure the community appreciates it.

Tom

Oh, I just realised why this keeps happening (I hope). Fixed again.

After going to atmosphere.meteor.com/accounts I can sign in in 'Step One'. But when I try to connect my MD account in 'Step Two' I get the message "Something went wrong: Invalid redirect URI [400]" in the popup window after clicking the 'Use this account' button. Can you fix this? Or is there another way to associate my MD with my atmosphere account?

Hi Dave,

I've added you as owner of those packages. (They are `mrt:X` for the moment).

You can rename them to tbknl:X when package renaming comes out.

Could you migrate the following:
trail --> tbknl:trail
trail-monitor --> tbknl:trail-monitor

Hi Tom,

is it possible to associate my username "rebolon" to package mrt:animation ?
This package is now useless because Meteor provide a way of managing Data animation.
So i would like to set-unmigrated to that package but it seems to be impossible because it's not linked to my account.

Thanks for help
