Hey guys, I'd like to adopt the abandoned gem "garnet." It looks like what's currently on rubygems.org is a placeholder that has no code and hasn't been touched in 4 years. I've tried reaching out to the author but my emails bounce :(

Thanks!

    Hi camertron,

    Sorry about delay in response here. We don't revoke ownership of gems unless they are being actively malicious. I would suggest using a different name, which I hope you must already have.
    Check this comment for more info about our plans/issues with this.

    Hey sonalkr132,

    Thanks for your response. I was told by Evan that gem ownership could be
    transferred: https://twitter.com/camertron/status/1136807519395860480

    Can you please confirm if you are still interested in the ownership of the gem? I have also added the email of the existing owner to this ticket in case he wants to object.

    Hi camertron,

    I have added [email blocked] as an owner to garnet gem. Thank you for your patience with this.

    Awesome, thanks @sonalkr132! Have you heard anything from the original
    owner by any chance?
