I have also tried, for the same reason, without result. He seems to have 
been a student who has now left the university where he wrote the package. 
I also wrote to his apparent supervisor, also without result. My 
suggestion would be that the package be orphaned, and that if you are 
willing to replace it with your version, and to adopt it as maintainer, 
its posting on CRAN can be continued.
