Hey All,

  I am new to this group...hello! My name is Eric Wanchic and I've been looking for a base name to start a new gem package. I think I found it with 'freight'.

I feel that this has been severely abandoned, and this gem had no real purpose to begin with.

  • It's currently at version 0.0.0.
  • There have been zero changes.
  • Downloading the gem gives you an empty file, freight.rb. No class description or anything, just blank.
  • It has been like this for over 6 years (Established 12/12/12).

It's currently owned by a Tim Cull. I sent him an email last week with no reply (trc...@pollen.io). I called him today and left a message. I have a feeling he has moved on to greener pastures, and probably doesn't care to go through the steps need to properly transition the gem name.

Is there anyway I can obtain ownership of this gem? my account name is 'wanchic', (ewan...@gmail.com)

Thank you for any and all help.
