Ownership of unicode gem

The unicode gem is not listed with any author/owner. I suppose it was transferred during the RubyForge-to-Gemcutter migration, but now nobody has access to it. Is that correct?

Yoshida Masato, the author of the unicode library, says he didn't build that gem (which is way out-of-date, too), but maybe it could either be deleted or he (or me) be added as the owner? In either case I would build a new gem from the latest version of the library and push it up.

Btw, what are the objections against exposing a gem's owner(s) through the API and the gem owner command? Is it considered confidential information? Could it be made semi-public by requiring authentication? ... Had I better started a new discussion for this? ;-)

    There's no listed owners for that gem, or an author, and it's very old. If you want access to upload Yoshida's gem and maintain it I think that's acceptable. Let me know.

    Ok, please do as you see fit (delete the gem ./. list me as owner). The new gem is ready to be pushed.

    I've listed you as owner, go for it!
