I have been trying to reach the author but have not heard back from him

This is done now.

This is done as well.

I also conferred with the original author of th transtab/ directory,
and debian-legal, and documented the license of those files.

So, could somebody perhaps consider sponsoring python-translitcodec
into Debian?

It is one of a few modules that are needed by mediagoblin, a python web
application I'm working on packaging.

The other is python-mongokit, which I also haven't heard any feedback
