hello maintainers,
i have a project ( but i am not the project owner.
First had fgaucho (Felipe Gaucho) as project owner, i was just a developer. Felipe passed away a few months, now the project does not have an owner.
Since i don't want to request another project just because i can't add or remove members (i still able to commit, make releases, etc), would be nice if anyone there make me the project owner. Thanks in advance.

You are an admin on the project and have full access to all the features.

Dear Sonyabarry,

I found this thread as i am trying to change the owner of a project as the project owner is no longer with us. But am unable to do so. I am an admin of the project but under the setting tab the owner name is grayed out and i am unable to change this.

I am able to change all the other settings such as project title and member roles though.

Would you know how i go about changing the project owner?
