Just a quick tip: if it's unavailable,
1) do you really think it is worth reporting it?
2) since you refer to this address in debian/changelog too, where did
_you_ download the tarball from? If I interpret whois info correctly,
that website is "unavailable" (=cybersquatted) at least since 1 year.

I'm not a Debian Developer, but I would guess that asking sponsorship
for a package apparently dead upstream almost automatically implies one
of the following:
1) being sure that upstream will eventually come back to life
2) taking over the role of upstream (including making releases
downloadable somewhere)
