I'm pretty sure that there needs to be an upstream somewhere,
otherwise it is a dead project. That doesn't mean necessarily that
there can't be a Debian package for it. But sooner or later someone
will find and file a Debian bug against the source code. And while
you can patch it in the Debian package, it is better to get those
fixes in upstream.

Have you tried to contact the upstream authors to see if they care
about the project and making it publically available again? If not,
perhaps you want to take over upstream and host it at SF or
someplace like that?
