You can do this yourself, but you'll need to delete your PPA first.

If you need to keep the contents of the PPA, you can follow this procedure:

 * create a temporary team
 * create a temporary PPA for that team
 * go to https://launchpad.net/~alextarkhov/+archive/ubuntu/ppa/+copy-packages and copy everything to that temporary PPA, selecting the "Copy existing binaries" option
 * go to the "View package details" view of the temporary PPA and wait for everything to publish (green ticks under "Build status")
 * delete https://launchpad.net/~alextarkhov/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
 * rename your account on https://launchpad.net/~/+edit
 * create a new PPA owned by your newly-renamed account
 * go to the "Copy packages" view of the temporary PPA and copy everything to your new PPA, selecting the "Copy existing binaries" option
 * go to the "View package details" view of your new PPA and wait for everything to publish (green ticks under "Build status")
 * delete the temporary PPA
