thank you for your interest in this project.
Actually, I've created the pep8-naming package one year ago as a

It evolved quickly as the first extension to flake8 2.0.
At this time I declared that I don't intend to maintain it, and I
asked for a volunteer to continue the effort :
So I welcome you on-board, and I just gave you write access to the repository.
