A basic version of this is now available via:
With this feature sysadmin should now be free to change the repopath
value in the metadata YAML and kdesrc-build will reconfigure the
remote URL appropriately automatically. This works as long as the same
`kde:$path` expression works for both fetch and push, i.e. the layout
on the anongit.kde.org network must match with the layout of
git.kde.org/invent.kde.org. If necessary a simple path prefix change
could still work with a minor update to the pushInsteadOf mapping,
e.g. when repos on invent are mapped to kde/ <path>  instead of

You can also experiment with setting invent.kde.org as the push URL by
setting x-invent-kde-push-urls to true in your rc file. The effect
should be visible through git remote -vv afterwards. (Disable the
setting and re-run again afterwards because this will obviously break
your push URLs as long as the Gitlab migration hasn't completed yet).
