Abandoned gem: "flow"

Hi Rubygems community,

It appears that the ruby gem "flow" is occupied by an abandoned project from 2008:

I'd very much like to be able to use this name for a new project pertaining to modeling flows of computations in Ruby in style inspired by Monix in Scala, but consistent with idioms and capabilities of Ruby.

I've reached out to the original author Ry, but after so many years I have some doubt that I will received a response.

Is there a process to claim an abandoned gem if no response is received within a window of time?

Thank you,

    Nevermind. I was able to reach the original authoer Ryan, and he has graciously transitioned ownership of the gem to me. So no further action needed.
