PEP 541: transfer ownership of abandoned 'utidylib package #4860

I would like to request to transfer ownership of the name 'utidylib' to myself. I've agreed with original uTidylib author (Cory Dodt) to take over the maintenance of the package (few years ago), however it is owned by somebody else on the pypi, so he can not transfer the package ownership to me. Unfortunately I was not able to find any contacts for this user (cntrlr). Is it possible either to transfer ownership to me (nijel) or at least to get contacts for cntrlr?

I understand that the PEP 541 procedures are just being put together (#1506) so please direct this request appropriately, but this seems to be the place to collect the requests right now.

Just to summary abandonment state:

  • I got permission from the original autor, but he does not control the pypi entry
  • There is no way for me to contact pypi entry owner (see #933)
  • The code is now actively maintained by
  • Changing the name is of course possible, but that's probably not what people depending on this would expect
