Hi, I reserved the `sidekiq-pro` gem name several years ago (by pushing and yanking a version). Now it appears that it is available for anyone to push to again. Is there a way for me to reserve the name on a permanent basis? If anyone pushes a gem with this name, it's 100% guaranteed either a mistake or illegal.

    You need to have one live version to keep it reserved.

    Just push a gem at 0.0.0 version with single line in lib/NAME.rb

    raise "Placeholder"

    Should work just fine.
