I am trying to follow the instructions here: https://rubygems.org/gems/nulldb to add a new owner to this gem name before the reservation expires.

But even though I'm the creator, I'm getting: "You do not have permission to manage this gem."

    Hi Avdi,

    nulldb doesn't have any owners (Owner api). It could be possible that the owner has deleted their account from rubygems.org. You should be able to take over the namespace once the reservation period expires.
