I have made some modifications on a plugin. While everything is now working as I like to have it, I am annoyed by the update notification.
How can I fork the plugin such, that it I'd not linked anymore to the repository, but still uses all the settings from the database? Is it as easy as renaming only the folder and the php file, or there more required?
P.S.: license is GPL, so I think it is ok to do it...
