I'm developing the power (https://github.com/Kentzo/Power) module, a cross-platform package that allows you to get power info of the system, like power source or estimated time from battery. I didn't uploaded it to PyPI because I waited for updating of PyObjC on PyPI.
Unfortunately, recently module with the same name was already uploaded: http://pypi.python.org/pypi/power/1.0.1
It does nothing but checks whether number A is power of number B. Pretty useless compared to what my plugin does.

Renaming of my package is not a good option, because it's already used by semi-big projects like Cura (https://github.com/daid/Cura/tree/master/Cura). Could you please take a look and decide whether it's possible to contact author of that plugin or delete it from PyPI so I'll be able to upload mine.

Thanks.

    I have contacted the current owner.

    The original owner of "power" has deleted their package.
