Summary0000015: Try to acquire the "magic" name on the Python Package Index
DescriptionPer https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0541/ an abandoned project can be deleted by the PyPI maintainers to clear the way for reusing the name.

The current "magic" package on https://pypi.org/project/magic/ is unmaintained since initial upload in 2003, it cannot even be installed as there is no code uploaded to PyPI, the "Project links: Download" points at a website that no longer exists (according to web.archive.org it disappeared sometime between 20121203 and 20130103), and I cannot find the original uploader on the internet more recently than 2003.

I suspect it would not be difficult to convince the PyPI maintainers of the validity of a claim by the official project. :)
