I have the need to push a new version of a gem (documatic) that was previously released on Rubyforge from another author.
Now I'm the new mantainer of this gem at github (see http://github.com/TuxmAL/documatic), but trying to push my new gem version I receive this message:

$ gem push documatic-0.2.2.gem Pushing gem to RubyGems.org...
You do not have permission to push to this gem.

How can I remove this problem?

    I've added the current owner of the gem, [email blocked], to this conversation. Usually the person who pushed it first just does it out of goodwill, you can use gem owner to give Antonio permission to push as well.

    (The above email reply didn't seem to work. To reiterate...)

    I originally uploaded that gem to rubyforge.org, not via gem push or similar to rubygems.org.

    Is there a way to give Antonio administrative rights without my having to install Ruby or Rubygems?

    Not really, but I can do it manually, if you can confirm that you own that email by verifying your account on this site (registering should do it, I think)

    You could also hit the API, if you sign into rubygems.org and get your API key: http://rubygems.org/pages/api_docs#owner

    Hi Nick,

    Thanks for your assistance. I confirm that Antonio Liccardo is the new maintainer of Documatic. I'm happy for him to have ownership of the gem.
