I'm developing a python IM/chatroom package named Hermes (source hosted at https://github.com/mattlong/hermes\). The hermes package name on PyPI is currently being squatted w/ a completely empty project (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/hermes). Could you delete the current package and transfer the package name "hermes" to my PyPI account with username mattlong?

Discussion

  • I have asked the package owner to release the package name.

     
  • Due to lack of response, I have now deleted the package.
