Reclaiming an inactive profile RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I work on a team at Google who is getting ready to launch a Visual Studio add-in. We were looking into setting up a Visual Studio Gallery account to publish the extension from, and noticed that there is an inactive "Google" account/profile at:

    - If the owner has an @google.com email address, is it possible for you to give me their contact information so I could follow up about getting access to this account?

    - If the owner does not have an @google.com email address, I could also try following up with them via email. But given there has been no activity since 2011, is it possible for the seemingly inactive account name to get recycled?

    Ultimately, we could create a new account, "GoogleVSTools" or something. But if we were to do that then there could be some confusion between the two "Google" accounts.

    Feel free to reach me via email at xxxx.
