Possible gotcha's as company merges

Hi All,

The company I work for has been bought out/merged into another company, or
will be as of 1st March 2010.

I obviously will need to change the rtname and Organisation values at that
time.

Set($rtname , “Sitel SR”);
Set($Organization , “ham.sitel.co.nz”);

I just wondered if anyone has done this previously where I can pull from
their experience, also by amending these to values will this cause issues
with RT as now our RT has been used for some 50,000 tickets and counting?

Just installed the merge users extension too as we will all have new email
addresses, I am not particularly looking forward to the changes I will have
to make at this time.

Regards,*

You may also need to change $EmailSubjectTagRegex so emails with the old
$rtname will match to the correct tickets.

If you will also be changing your RT email addresses or domain name, you
may also need to change the $RTAddressRegexp variable as well.

Set($Organization , “ham.sitel.co.nz”);

Changing $Organization will break ticket links for all current tickets
in your DB, unless you can figure out a way to modify the RT DB to match
the change I suppose.

I just wondered if anyone has done this previously where I can pull
