It shouldn't be in the pkg-games SVN.  It is maintained by me personally.  I
intended to move to team maintainance (and did actually set this list as the
maintainer), but after some discussion (upstream, where there are several
DDs), this was reverted.

Yes it is.  The source package is called pioneers.

No, I will continue working on it (both upstream and as maintainer), but
upstream (in particular my co-maintainers) and I decided that it made no sense
to move maintainance to the games team.

I could try that, thanks.

Well yes, but my ssh connection to svn.debian.org works fine, it only doesn't
when I try it through svn.  That surprises me.

I'm still interested, and will continue packaging it.  Just not in the team.
