Hi Terry,

If I understand correctly, it should be enough for you to just

- rename your existing 'trunk' branch to 'old_trunk', through the lp ui
- rename your new fixed branch to 'trunk'
- go to the main series for leo-editor and associate that with the branch

Looking at <https://launchpad.net/leo-editor/trunk2> it seems you
might have already done this?  I hope that solved it.
