Sweet zombie Jesus, where did you find that fp is owned by me?! :o Not that I mind, but it's totally a surprise, it almost woke me up

    I did a peek at the permissions for fp on PAUSE.

    FWIW, I've noticed you have a large number of lowercase namespaces reserved (see the bottom of this list). A little bit of investigation leads to a guess that an upload of the Prima dist happened to index all of the examples, which had a number of namespaces used. Perhaps you could go in to PAUSE and give up primary maintenance status of the namespaces you don't need?

      Hm, right, yes. Here, I removed them. I've never applied for these namespaces in the first place, they somehow appeared automatically. Thanks for the find!

        FYI, namespaces need not be requested at all. Simply uploading a module will reserve the namespace for you as "first-come".

        As I said earlier, some files in the examples folder of Prima use some of the namespaces which were marked for you as "first-come". (see this example with "package dmfp;" on line 60).

        In any case, thanks for fixing up those permissions!

        Cheers.
