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says he didn't build that gem (which is way out-of-date, too), but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!
