Stale github org

Hello, my team would like to create a new github org called “jalapeno”, however, the name is already taken. Its an org that was created several years ago and has zero activity: https://github.com/jalapeno. I’m not seeing a way to contact the owner (but I’m not the most experienced with github so I may be missing something). Is there any way to gain access to this org name?

:wave: Welcome!

If there is no contact information on the profile, the only other thing you can do is to open a ticket and ask if the account can be reviewed for dormancy. It’s worth noting that sometimes there is private repository activity that isn’t publicly visible though.

thank you @canuckjacq - we opened a ticket and support got it resolved
