How to switch from using Source Repositories to Shared Repositories

I have created a number of plans with individual source repositories defined per-plan (not really realizing that shared repositories were an option). Realizing I needed to make a change to all of them, I assumed there was a better way... shared repositories. So, I created a shared repository that mirrored how I set up my source repositories. Then I went and tried to reconfigure my plans to use this new shared repository.... but I can't figure out how. Any ideas? Surely I don't have to re-create all my plans from scratch...

Once you have created your shared repository, browse to the Source Repositories tab of the plan you want to switch to the Shared Repository, click on the Repository in question and select the Shared Repository you have created useing the Source Repository dropdown.

My issue was that the Shared Repositories being listed in the Source Repositories drop-down was non-obvious. I never even considered looking there. I made a suggestion that the label for that drop-down be changed to just "Repositories".
