Is sbackup maintained? If not, what to do?

Dear all,

it is almost one year that sbackup was modified to use a group ID that
exists on Ubuntu but not on Debian systems. As suggested on
debian-release@d.o, I have increased the severity of the bug to
'serious' three weeks ago. (#427697)

sbackup is a native Debian package whose maintainer is also upstream
developper. As a native package, it is translated by Debian voluteers,
whose work is ignored by the maintainer. (#431936)

The homepage of sbackup has not been updated recently, except by
spammers (http://sbackup.sourceforge.net/RecentChanges).

Despite the fact that the maintainer of sbackup is actively blogging on
planet.d.o, I wonder if sbackup is maintained. From a user perspective
(and I am a user of sbackup, that is why I feel concerned), I think that
if there is no future for sbackup, it can be discussed wether it is
better to remove it and save volunteer time to fix other bugs than the
ones of sbackup.

Have a nice day,
