This is unfair, they don't have dependents but can register because their git URL is visible, while those who have dependents can't register because their URL is not visible, is the condition for having dependents no longer valid?

Hi, the tea protocol relies on data from the package manager but not all information will be the exact same as we had to adjust the variables to ensure spam protection and accurate teaRank calculations. The tea protocol is reconciles different dependencies and dependents for each version of a package which is why there may be a delta in what you see in the package manager and the tea protocol. Your project may have more dependents on tea than on npm because teaRank includes your own package as a dependent of itself as part of our spam protection strategy.
