Hello,

I'm volunteer to help developers of FontTools to help publish their work on PyPI and created for my own needs fonttools2 project. But this name doesn't looks correct. So if it is possible I want to claim project id fonttools and move data to this name. How https://pypi.python.org/pypi/FontTools shows 404, but the same time:

$ python setup.py register
[...skip...]
Registering fonttools to http://pypi.python.org/pypi
Server response (403): Package name conflicts with existing package 'FontTools'

My id on pypi is xen. Please add me to owners list of FontTools or delete FontTools and let me claim it again.

    I'm just going to assume Just is OK with this, since there's been no visible release made since 2003. You should have the Maintainer role now.

     
  • Richard, thank you for your time, but I'm still getting an error "Upload failed (403): You are not allowed to edit 'fonttools' package information".

    Can you add me to owners list and I will grant permissions for other people who also participate in development by myself?

    We have 3 packages now (https://pypi.python.org/pypi?%3Aaction=search&term=FontTools&submit=search including hidden FontTools) all are outdated and most recent version is not available via PyPI, which is odd.
