[I see that this is a cross post with ruby-talk, so I'm pasting my
answer here also]

Dave Lee is the current maintainer, dave(at)cherryville(dot)org, and I have
quite a few fixes that I'd like applied as well. He's been busy for the
past few months, so I haven't had much luck getting the fixes in. He's
supposed to be giving me read access to the repository so I can at least
see what he's committing to it, but I've been waiting on that for a
while, too.

Overall, the module needs a substantial amount of work (it's still using
deprecated API functions, for instance).

Regards,
        Jeff Davis

PS: He has another email address also, but I don't want to post that on
a public list because I haven't seen it in other public lists/sites.
