Hello, rubygems guys!

I am developing a gem called 'tour_cms'. The gem has been developed on my machine, and finally uploaded to Github ( ). However when I did 'gem push', it says "Name 'tour_cms' is too similar to an existing gem named 'tourcms'"

The existing gem "tourcms" does not seem to be updated more than eleven years, so I think there is little possibility that 'tour_cms' confuses or misleads someone.

Could you please whitelist 'r_bridge' ?

Thank you
