Hi all,
The gem object_daddy has been abandoned by its maintainer (user nofxx) for over 2 years now. The maintainer's github repo of the gem has been deleted, and I can find no working email or means by which to contact him - the one listed on the rubygems.org page bounces. It should probably also be pointed out that the maintainer is in no way associated with the authors, who were actually surprised to find out a gem version even existed - they had heretofore been deploying it as a Rails 2-series plugin. I have their permission to take over maintainership of the gem, and would be obliged if I could be permitted so to do. My rubygems.org user id is 44761, and my github.com username is awebneck.

    I've added nofxx to this discussion. Is there anything we can do here to help?
