Changing my username in Gitlab

What happens

I changed my username because it did not comply with the instructions in the guidelines (I used an underscore) and I don’t know if I should report this to update my user in the repository as I requested access with the previous username.
In at least one of the files I appear with my old username (challenges/policies/data.yaml).

What do you understand or find about that problem

I understand that there are documents where my user name is not automatically updated.

Did you try any workaround? What did you do?

I made a merge request that had no errors related to this in the first phase pending approval and verified that I still have access to all the files.


New username

Previous username esteban_v on challenges/policies/data.yaml

I need help with

I would like to know if I should report this change, and how to do so.

Thank for your attention
