Reserving namespaces?

I am an active member of the CakePHP community and the author of the capcake gem ( which is Capistrano for CakePHP (1 and 2).

Now that CakePHP is nearing stable release, I have finished developing the new version (attached) on Capistrano 3 since on the Capistrano's organization official github account, there is a gem for the laravel framework but not one for cakephp.

Here's where problems start. Someone seems to have already 'reserved the namespace' - in what I believe are his own words:

The code is no where to be found and after trying to install it, I confirm it hasn't even been developed.

Can someone with the right permissions release this namespace (which is a top level one when it comes to Capistrano + CakePHP)?

    Sorry for the late reply.

    How was it resolved exactly?

    The namespace is still taken and the gem still does nothing.

    Our policy is to not forcibly reassign gem ownership. We encourage you to contact the current gem owner to see if a transfer to you can be arranged; 9 times out of 10, a friendly email is all it takes.
