I've added the two users with ownership on this gem, [email blocked] and [email blocked], to this thread. Usually the original pushers just do it out of good will, and the ownership gets transferred back just fine. You can use gem owner to add James back onto this gem.
Please look at rubyforge.org . There are three owners. I am one of them. Actually, I'm about the only active one, so leaving me off is simply wrong.
How does rubygems.org even determine who owns a gem? What's the authoritative source? The rubyforge project has been where admin tasks have been handled. Why is it not used to determine ownership of gems here?
I cannot sign in using my rubyforge account E-mail address.
When I tried signining in I did not get any error message, but even
though I'm redirected to the main page it does not show my user name,
and has a link to sign in (where it should have a link to sign out).
rubygems.org now seems to know about my rubyforge.org account E-mail
address (unlike a few days ago), and sent me a "reset password" link
when I requested it.
I used that to set a new password, but it didn't help. When I again try
to sign in, I just end up on the home page but I'm not signed in.
I tried this using Firefox, Opera, and Chrome, so I don't think this is
a browser issue.
It happened to me, where you log in with a 'suspected' email address (one i use everywhere) and it let me in. But it didn't look like it did.... Then when i logged in with my 'real' email and pwd, it showed the dashboard etc. Before it didn't, and just said Sign In Sign Up etc, in the right hand upper nav cluster.
