Hello,

I have started work on redis-based throttling some time ago as part of `sidekiq-throttled` gem. Recently I've extracted throttling logic into a standalone gem: <https://gitlab.com/ixti/redis-throttle/>. Unfortunately, I've found that I can't publish the gem because of the name is similar to the abandoned `redis_throttle`. What can I do? Should I just pick up a new name? o_O

    Hi Alexey,

    You should be able to claim redis-throttle now.
    However, to avoid confusion, I would recommend picking a different name or contacting the owner of the redis_throttle to transfer it to you or yank his gem.
