Another potentially ownerless gem - exception_notification

I'm maintaining the rails exception_notification plugin and want to push a gem version. http://rubygems.org/gems/exception_notification points at http://github.com/jeremyevans/exception_notification. I talked to Jeremy ([email blocked]) and he says the project doesn't recognize him as owner (possibly got created during github/rubygems transition time) so he can't hand it over.

    Hey Tim,

    So it looks like the owner is currently: [email blocked]

    I'm going to invite the user to this issue so they have a chance to move the gem elsewhere before we yank/delete it and transfer ownership. Usually gems like this are just pushed up so they're available for others to download, and the authors have usually been quite agreeable to move their forked gem elsewhere once the original author catches up.

    I would suggest pushing the current gem as 'stick-exception_notification' and then we can transfer ownership over.

    I pushed the gem, because it was not available from gemcutter. Feel free to transfer ownership, I don't want any more forks (I hate the havoc github has created). I also pushed these:
    * acts_as_abusable * acts_as_rateable * acts_as_scribe * cisco * restful_authentication * tog Feel free to transfer ownership of these to new potential owners too ...

    Sounds good, I just added Tim as an owner on exception_notification. I'm going to make this issue public so if the authors of these other gems search for why they can't take over control perhaps they'll see this issue.
