Simple question: is apt-proxy still being maintained?

Based on the growing list of bugs, I suspect not.

A quick glance of some of the reports shows no sign of response from
the maintainer.

Some users in fact have completely given up.

A recent bug I have discovered makes it unusable.

However, I prefer the approach over apt-cacher, as the apt-sources
entries remain independent of the server that will be used to retrieve
the files.

Is there a good alternative?

<why this is important>
Without apt-proxy, I can't build packages with pbuilder, because it
can't download the required files, which means I can't rebuild my
package for sarge in order to see if it fixes a bug I encountered while
testing another piece of Debian software. ARgghh!
