Is it possible to release rights of, or destroy, a project with invalid maintainer's address ?

Asked by David Soulayrol on 2008-03-18

Gennady Arkhangorodsky registered the Duo project on Launchpad two years ago, like he did for two or three other projects. The Launchpad page does nothing but presenting the project and providing a bazaar branch from the original source code on svn.

I have brought much love to Duo, and I am ready to share it today, and I did want to use Launchpad. Unfortunaly, Gennady's mail is no more valid and I'm locked out. Could it be possible to grant me admin rights on Duo project ?

(I also sent a mail to feedback with some more details on 03/15)

I've transfered https://edge.launchpad.net/duo to you. Have you managed to reach Gennady through any other address?

David Soulayrol (dsoulayrol) said : #2

I do not have any other mean to contact Gennady. He only created the launchpad entry, and never got in touch with Duo author.

Can you give me some pointers on edge.launchpad.net ? Will it become launchpad.net soon, and how ? What is the relation between projects on edge.launchpad and on launchpad ?

Thanks.
