First of all, I would like to thank the authors for this great tool. It greatly eases my workflow to manage repository mirros. I especially like the consistent command line usage.

What I miss is to change properties of names after snapshots or mirrors have been creates. Even better would be the ability to change all properties such as the options "-distribution" or the components that were specified upon creationg

@sromberg This is something I was going to implement, but never got time to finish that.

Even though aptly doesn't support editing mirrors, you can drop and re-create mirror with different parameters. As aptly stores package files in common pool, you won't have to download files once again. The only downside of "drop-then-create" is that you loose history of snapshot creation, which are used in aptly graph.

I think drop and recreate is completely ok here. Maybe just documenting this fact as the update procedure for those settings is enough for now?

That's one of the candidates for the FAQ I should start building :)
