Taking over `test` gem

I'm not 100% sure yet, but I'm considering the use the gem name test for a universal test runner I've developed. But it seems the name has been taken:


By this guy:


But, as you can see, there is no contact information, no description, and the gem itself has nothing in it except one method:

def jim
  puts "JIM TEST GEM"

So I think its safe to conclude that "wooki" was just doing a test of gem development/gem pushing and this is not a real gem.

I would contact wooki to make sure of this, but like I said, there's no contact information to be found.

So I am wondering would I be able to get control of the gem?

Then again, maybe you guys would like to keep it as a sort of dev/null gem to test with?

    Jim, are you interested in continuing to own the 'test' gem name?

    Hi, sorry I created that by mistake and couldn;t work out how to put it back.

    So no, I'm not.

    Yanked the wrong version...there was a 0.3.0 and 0.1, oops. You should be all set to push a new one up as long as it doesn't match those two numbers.

    Still a problem. It seems it still thinks wooki owns the gem. Even though I was able to push it the first time, I can't push it now.
