It is indeed dead upstream. I even refrained to upload the
latest snapshot (with notices support), because it appeared as a
reverse-dependency of rails, and I never had a use case for it with
rails. I used libdbi-ruby1.8 with rails.

I adopted it back then, because I used it for personal admin
scripts. There is also libdbd-pg-ruby1.8 as reverse-dependency.

I would go for a total replacement, as this fork is what seems to
be used nowadays. Since I do not have the time to investigate, this
is why I said that you can do whatever it takes to move on, so feel
free to add you as co-maintainer.
