I want to repush a gem, I just fixed some little things in the README file. I yanked it, but now I can't repush it!
The gem is https://rubygems.org/gems/antonym-predicates/
I really don't want to create a new version just for this. I've tried to, at least, unyank it, but then I got the following:
gem yank --undo antonym-predicates -v0.1.0
Unyanking gem from RubyGems.org...
You do not have permission to yank this gem.

    Once all versions of a gem has been yanked, it releases that gem namespace for anyone else to push to.

    Also, you can't overwrite gem versions... more on that in the FAQ here:


    If you want control over that gem just push another version to that same namespace and you can get it back. Or let me know, I can do that manually.
