pry-macro, https://github.com/baweaver/pry-macro, 5 years old.
pry-disasm, https://github.com/cout/pry-internal/, 7 years old.

Above two gem all not work now.

Following is my own fork, all work very well with newest pry.

    Hi Billy,

    Sorry about the delay in response. We don't revoke access of gem owners unless the gem is actively being malicious. Can you please contact the owner directly?

    OK, pry-macro author is contact. thank, but another i sent gmail for half one month,
    no any reply.

     What i means is don't need revoke the access of gem original owners, just need add a new
    maintainer, anyway, those gem is several years not updated, this is the reason i sent this quest.

    current, ruby gems have too many those situation, want to contribute, but could not contact to origin author, gem keep die, so, rename to use a awful new name, and many good gem name, in fact, just a toy, and never maintain again, maybe we consider clean up those gem maintainer and make those gem can be adopt by somebody interest.

    Thank

    Thank you.
