How do I find the "owner" of a rubygem?

Greetings, I am the original author of this gem. I am thankful that someone in the community took the initiative to push it to gemcutter, however now I cannot push updates to my own gem!

I'm sure the person who pushed it originally would be glad to give me access, but I can't figure out how to find out who that person is. (The "authors" section seems to read from the gem file, because it only lists myself and not the gemcutter owner).

Can you tell me how we can find out who the owner of a gem is? If not, I think this could be a very useful feature.

    Hi there,

    It looks like this was resolved already?

    >> Rubygem.find_by_name("git-style-binaries") { |o| }
    => ["[email blocked]", "[email blocked]"]

    And yeah, we don't expose emails through the UI for spam reasons right now. I'd love to have a way to bug authors but I haven't thought of a way to do that nicely yet.

    Going to consider this resolved, if there's still problems with this let me know!
