I have a Rubygems account that works great but am now coming back to a library I wrote a few years ago (whatlanguage) to make improvements. It seems whatlanguage and my Rubyforge account were migrated automatically and there's an account on I can't access. The attached picture (also at shows the problem.

How can I either access this old account to somehow remove/move the "whatlanguage" project.. or how can I have "whatlanguage" migrated onto my normal account at Thanks!

    Can you sign in with that email? Or reset the password?

    If that doesn't work, let me know...but let's start there :)

    Today, I can log in using the old details and all was well. Yesterday, said the e-mail address didn't even exist in the system (as shown in the screenshot I took then) and my RubyForge details didn't work here. Now they do :-) I guess something auth-wise has worked out in that time so thanks if it was down to you!

    Now I just need to figure out how to either add this user locally additionally to my other one (which I'm hoping is possible - hitting the docs now) or otherwise I'll have to ask for a migration or deletion.

    OK, I figured out how to add my main account as an owner on these older projects and I'll just let them sit on this older one for now so everything's good. Thanks! If you close tickets or whatever around here, consider this one closed ;-)
