#119 ownership addition - pychecker


I made the latest release of pychecker, 0.8.19
The latest on pypi is 0.8.12 (!)

When trying to register I get:

Registering PyChecker to http://pypi.python.org/pypi
Server response (403): You are not allowed to store 'PyChecker' package information

I had to change the name from pychecker to PyChecker because using the lowercase one it said:
Server response (403): Package name conflicts with existing package 'PyChecker'

It would be nice to get that fixed too.

    Please contact the owner, Neal Norwitz, to ask him to add you as a maintainer (or owner, if you're supplementing or replacing him).

    The case issue was imposed upon us by easy_install. We could change the name, but we'd need to confirm you're permitted to do so first. This would, of course, break references to the existing package page.

    Thomas: what is the status of this? Have you contacted Neal Norwitz?

    Closing because of lack of response.
