I'm trying to add some Chinese localized strings to the Basic Information section of FlashGot, at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/developers/addon/flashgot/edit

Whenever I try to save, I get the following errors and data is kept unchanged:

    English (US) : This add-on name is already in use. Please choose another.
    中文 (简体): This add-on name is already in use. Please choose another.
    Deutsch: This add-on name is already in use. Please choose another.

Couldn't that one just be renamed and spurious duplicated like this just prevented at the initial upload stage (if it doesn't work this way yet)?

Any chance to have a work-around? 
Mozilla China contributed these strings, but I cannot publish them because of this bug :(
I deleted the add-on since it was admin-disabled and doesn't even have an owner. I'm not sure if the name is liberated automatically or further action is required.
FlashGot is up for grabs again.
