Yes, I don't really know what the maintainer will answer to me. Except that rgam is no longer on CRAN, that I already know !
However, I know mgcv and "classical" GAM model but GAMs can be very sensitive to the presence of a small proportion of observations that deviate from the assumed model, so I was looking for a more robust/resistant GAM. I know the robustgam package but I prefered the rgam (more intuitive to me).
However, I have finished by fitting a robust gam using robustgam package. So everything is OK.

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.
