+Repo URL Change Note
+----
+We recently changed the repo URI for Source Code Pro. If you have forked or cloned the repo you will have to make updates to your local version.
+
+First check your remote repositories
+`git remote -v`
+
+Usually you will have `origin` (in the case of a clone) and something like `upstream` if you've forked the repo. To update those you need to run
+
+`git remote set-url origin https://github.com/adobe/source-code-pro.git`
+
+If you have other remote repositories you will need to run that command again and replace `origin` with the name of the remote repository (eg `upstream`).

I believe if the repository has been forked by a user, the name change will not occur on their fork.

For example, my fork will still exist at: git@github.com:ppicazo/Source-Code-Pro.git

They should only set the new remote url on the remote which is pointing to the adobe fork.
