Hi Theppitak,

I would highly recommend you try interacting with upstream again to
convince them about adding their contact information to a FONTLOG and
suggesting people get in touch with them via that file as it's not
dropped by the package maintainers. Notifications can't be a requirement
but you providing contact information and suggesting it can make it easier.

One small step and their release can be free software and can be more
widely distributed as part of Debian.

Thanks for your efforts.
