While exporting configuration for my site using the Features module, I noticed that one of the fields I use on many content types was initially created on the "news" content type instead of the "article" content type. This presents a problem, since it means all of the features that I export are now dependent on a completely unrelated module (news) to provide a common field (field_image).
What I'd like to do is change the entity that "owns" field_image to be article. This will let me export one base feature which provides a bunch of common fields, and have the rest of the features depend on that instead of having them all depend on news.
How can I change which content type owns field_image without breaking everything?
