	The aegis -New_Project_Alias command is	used to	create a projects
	alias, so that branches	of projects may	be referred by a shorter or
	more specific name.

	The project name must be given on the command line; the	default
	project	is not sufficient.  The	project	named may be a top-level
	project, or it may be a	branch (to any depth of	branch).

	The new	alias name must	also be	given on the command line, and it must
	be the second name.  Project aliases have fewer	limits than project
	names: they must not need shell	quoting, that's	all.

	Aliases	may be used in may ways.  The most common is to	give a partic-
	ular release a code name.  You would do	this by	saying
		aenpa example.4.2 sydney
	This would make	"sydney" an alias for the "example.4.2"	branch.

	Another	use for	aliases	is to have a fixed alias for your active
	branch,	so that	your developer team does not need to change their de-
	fault project, even though the branch number moves on for each re-
	lease.	You could say
		aenpa example.4.2 example.cur
	This would make	"example.cur" an alias for the "example.4.2" branch.
	When this was finished,	and 4.3	started, a project administrator could
		aerpa example.cur
		aenpa example.4.3 example.cur
	Now "example.cur" is an	alias for the "example.4.3" branch, but	the
	developers need	only reference "example.cur" to	always work on the
	right branch.

	The following options are understood:

		This option may	be used	to obtain more information about how
		to use the aegis program.

	See also aegis(1) for options common to	all aegis commands.

	All options may	be abbreviated;	the abbreviation is documented as the
	upper case letters, all	lower case letters and underscores (_) are op-
	tional.	 You must use consecutive sequences of optional	letters.

	All options are	case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or
	lower case or a	combination of both, case is not important.

	For example: the arguments "-project", "-PROJ" and "-p"	are all	inter-
	preted to mean the -Project option.  The argument "-prj" will not be
	understood, because consecutive	optional characters were not supplied.

	Options	and other command line arguments may be	mixed arbitrarily on
	the command line, after	the function selectors.

	The GNU	long option names are understood.  Since all option names for
	aegis are long,	this means ignoring the	extra leading '-'.  The	"--op-
	tion=value" convention is also understood.

	It is an error if the old project does not exist.
	It is an error if the current user is not a project administrator.
	It is an error if the new alias	name look like a branch	name.
	It is an error if the new alias	contains unprintable characters.

	The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error.  The
	aegis command will only	exit with a status of 0	if there are no	er-

	See aegis(1) for a list	of environment variables which may affect this
	command.  See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's
	project_specific field for how to set environment variables for	all
	commands executed by Aegis.

		Remove project alias.
