Is there any way to transfer ownership of a PyPI package from one user to another? I apologize I'm rather new to open source.

    Have you contacted the current owner of the package? If you're not able to, then please tell me your PyPI username and I'll contact the owner on your behalf.

      I can contact the current owner though I haven't yet.

    We (the package owner and I) are in agreeance to transfer ownership of the package PyPDF2 from him to myself. My PyPI username is mstamy2

    The package owner can do that themselves through the admin interface for the package.

      Thanks - I was unaware of that.

    I prefer to have users perform ownership handovers as there's a nicer audit trail from my perspective.
