Organization name already exists, but is empty

We’d like to publish official images of the Caddy Web Server to Docker Hub.

The caddy namespace is taken, but empty:

What can we do to be able to use our name? Our hope is to become a verified publisher and have an Official Image on the listings.

Thank you!


I’ve emailed support (twice) as well as some internal contacts at Docker but had only radio silence.

I think the only thing you can do is have whoever is running with the namespace to actually close their one. I don’t know of a way to have same named ones in the way you’re hoping for.

I’m expecting that somebody from Docker would be able to make this happen easily enough. It’s an annoying squat on a trademarked name. I don’t want to pull the trademark card but if that’s the only way it will get noticed…
