Hi,

I've built a gem I named "waterfall", then some time after I decided to push it to rubygems.

It appears a deprecated gem had the very same name: https://rubygems.org/gems/waterfall

So I contacted his author (Steve Rude) in may, and he gently told me he'd delete his gem so I can use the name.

Unfortunately he didnt manage to do it so far. I definitely understand he has more urgent stuff to do and I cant blame it, its just I'd like to find a way to make things go forward since he did accept the idea.

What would you recommend me please?

Thanks

Ben

    Sorry about the delay here. I've added Steve to this conversation - are you still interested in giving up this gem namespace? If so - can Ben use it?

    Ahh, @rubygems is a bot. That looks good enough to me - I'll add you as an owner, I just need to know what your username or email is on the site!

    So, thank you very much for adding me as an owner!
