There is a package with the same name as our project that was never used and looks abandoned: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/nix/. Is it possible to delete the empty package so I we can use the name?

We are a group of software developers in German Neuroinformatics (www.g-node.org) and since a few years we are working on a project aimed at developing a common data exchange format for Neuroscience (NIX, https://github.com/G-Node/nix). The corresponding C++ library is available here (https://launchpad.net/~gnode/+archive/ubuntu/nix).

    The nix (packaging) project is quite active, and that registration is just over a month old, so I hesitate to take action on this request.
