Claim a repository name that is our company name

Hi! Curious how I could request to take over a repository? It is empty and has the name of our company.

was writing to ask if you would be so kind as to allow UMA to own the profile of this name:

Currently here but would like to use our short name: https://github.com/UMAprotocol/

I opened a support ticket but have not heard back after 12 days. Anywhere else I should be asking? Thank you!

Hi there! :wave: Welcome to the Community!

I’ve had a look and I can confirm we’ve received your request. We do get quite a substantial number of these requests for usernames, I’m afraid, so they do often take some time.

Hopefully you’ll hear back shortly!
