Barry Warsaw was the last maintainer.  He explicitly resigned around
January 12, 2001, hoping that somebody would pick up the task, but
nobody has AFAIK.

In XEmacs the XEmacs Development Team will respond to bug reports
referring to an XEmacs package version, but there is no active
maintainer.  Divergence in packages is not a very high priority, but
feel free to make an issue in the tracker -- Emacs compatibility is
desirable, although not terribly high priority if ours is working and
theirs isn't.<wink>

I would assume somebody in GNU would respond to bug reports for Emacs,
on more or less the same basis, but AFAIK they have no maintainer for
supercite, either.

Both, probably.  XEmacs doesn't change author version numbers for
XEmacs changes in packages, it changes the package version.  AFAIK
there is no policy for author version numbers in GNU Emacs; some
people do keep them up, but AIUI the maintainers in general prefer to
refer to the Emacs version number rather than maintain separate
versions for individual packages.

Here are XEmacs changes that might be related:
