Hi Thomas, thanks for the follow-up.

Debian site we have the address of the upstream author in our
debian/copyright for the pycaml package, but is the sourceforge one you
already know. I don't know whether Samuel Mimram (Cc-ed) as well, who
took care of the latest upload of the pycaml package in Debian, has any
other contact with Art.

If you attempts to contact him still fail (as it seem) I see this at the
only natural evolution. Just put up a new homepage for pycaml, with a
brief mention of the fact that, being unable to getting in touch with
previous maintainer, and having performed several bugfix/improvements,
you have taken over the maintenance of pycaml.

... then, just let us know when you have read your new release and we
will package it in Debian :-)
