Project path can't be renamed to lowercase

I’m working on a public project in golang and to avoid issues with go get I tried changing the project path to lowercase. When I tried to do that I got the error telling me, that the path already exists. So the project blocks its own name.

After that I tried temporarily changing the path to a different one so I could change it back to the lowercase path. This resulted in a 500 error page being shown. This got me thinking and I reread the documentation which states, that the namespace is lost since a permanent redirect is setup to make the transition easier. Now I’m in a really bad situation since I’m stuck with the new name and can’t get back to the old name. Is there a possible way to revert this?
