It's not clear from your post why you're trying to contact the maintainer.
But it gives the impression you're trying to contact the maintainer,
of an archived package, because you can't install the package.
It's not their responsibility to respond to these kinds of questions.

Also, I note the most obvious choice for GAM-based models in R, is
mgcv, which ships with R.
But there are other packages, if mgcv doesn't meet your needs.
