I am developing a project 'pycms'. Searching PyPI I found no project of the same name.

However, 'setup.py register' returns '(403) Package name conflicts with existing package PyCMS'.

Since I do not find PyCMS in the PyPI index, I can not contact the original submitter.

Is there a way to free the PyCMS slot for my project?

Thanks!

  • I have contacted the package owner of the PyCMS package. If he doesn't respond, we can free the name for you.

  • The package owner has released the name; please try to register it.
