I'm trying to push a gem I have just written called boris. The name is taken on Rubygems but the only version has been yanked. Rubygems support docs indicate anyone may push to a namespace with no active gems and simply take it over. Please advise?

    Looks like someone owns it now? Not sure if this is you or not, but sorry if someone stole it under your nose.
