Adam Dinwoodie is the maintainer, but it seems he has no activity with the

I'm currently working on releasing v2.12.2, and expect to have it out by
the end of the week. This was partly delayed by ill health (now
reasonably successfully managed, if not resolved) and partly by some Git
test script failures I've been trying to investigate.

Thanks. I have a deep knowledge of Git (top 5% Stack Overflow), so if I can help
let me know.
