Parked package names?
How do I get a package name that I notice is parked by someone who clearly isn’t using it?
Please email email@example.com and they’ll go through the package dispute policy. If they consider the package parked, odds are it’ll be transferred to you.
Not sure if a package is parked? Download the tarball and make sure there’s no actual code in it, using
$ npm pack <pkg> && tar xvzf ./<pkg>.tgz to extract its contents.
