The gem is not maintained by its owner, I need to update it to rails5. It would be great to transfer the ownership to someone who can maintain it (like me)

    Thank you for writing in. It is the policy of that we refrain from making judgements about the content of a gem, as we have little to no insight into what development a user might be doing out of the public eye, or what their eventual plans are. We know this can be frustrating, especially in the case of popular or common names, but we would rather err on the side of protecting creators than accidentally removing someone’s work.

    If you haven't already, I would attempt to contact the author and see if they'll add you as an owner of the gem. Instructions on how they can do that can be found here:

    I've cc'd the owner, hopefully they can weigh in.
