[Distutils] Parked Names in PyPI under user rodmena

Also the "windows" package.

Might just want to release all of those package names, as he's clearly a troll, but in light of the other discussions I think a case of well established and enforceable trademarks should be straightforward.

(Don't honestly know what we'd _do_ with packages with those names, but better for us to be squatting than someone else.)

Subject: [Distutils] Parked Names in PyPI under user rodmena


I was searching warehouse for all Microsoft owned packages today and came across a certain user that seems to have parked on a few different package names that I don’t believe he has any intention of using (@rodmena). https://warehouse.python.org/user/rodmena/ 

Can we get these released to the proper owners? He seems to have done this rather broadly.
If possible can the user @Microsoft be marked as the owner of the Microsoft package?
