Perl is under a dual GPL/artistic license, and so is this module. You do not
have to rename a fork; You could just upload a new package to CPAN and
Debian with an increased version number, and a copy of the email where
upstream stated that he would incorporate your changes. Yes, it would still
be a fork, but it would look like a NMU...

(Also, keep in mind that upstream probably stopped answering your email
because he's not that interested in the module anymore).
