Can't create new project, name registered but doesn't actually exist.

Asked by Brian Hilmers on 2012-01-23

I tried to create a project named "temple" but launchpad claims it is registered. There is no page for launchpad.net/temple. I'll assume the project is registered but dead? I've already had to rename my project due to another dead project on launchpad named "pagoda" (CMS ) which is registered but has no code or anything else. What can be done about this squatting?

Yes, there is a disabled project named "temple". In theory, we could rename the disabled project, but I recommend using a name that is easier to Google.

Ok, I'll take that advice, thanks.
