Issue #3 wontfix

Contact a package owner?

created an issue

There are various use cases in pypi where one would like to contact the owner of a package. In my case, someone had registered the name of my software (including correctly listing the authors), but not actually uploaded anything.

I would have tried to contact the owner of that record and ask to have it transferred so that I could upload a current version of that software, but I was unable to find any way to contact a user when all I know about them is the pypi user name listed in the record.

The bug I am reporting is one of these, but I'm not sure which:

  • There is no way to contact the owner of a pypi record.

  • There is a way to contact the owner, but I can't find it through the pypi user interface.
