Yes, the mailing list is pretty quiet these days... ;-)

The vanilla distribution works fine with Linux as far as I'm aware and
Tim Goodwin is the maintainer.  Most of the work I've done is to make
it work properly with GNU readline, and my current version works well
enough that I haven't done any development on it in a long while.
(I'll gladly share my current version with anyone who is interested.)
I would volunteer to help, but aside from my work commitments, I'm
currently involved in a couple of Python related side projects and my
plate is very full indeed.
