Name checker

Hello, I've recently created a gem whose name is 'too close to a typo protected gem'... So I thought that maybe it would be possible to get something like a name checker, that one would use before or in the process of creating a gem name, that would predict if your gem would be prevented to be pushed on rubygems...

    Hi Peter,

    Do you mean a client-side check in gem build? Our typo protection logic is discussed here. Feel free to leave your suggestions on it.
