Well, I've set the package to 'unmaintained' now... There were a few
commits since the last release (2012), but no release. If anyone has a
good reason to object to the change, I'll revert it.

Luca, this means that no link to this package is listed anymore by our
website. However, as for the other unmaintained packages, the packages
index page can still be reached by its URL. I wouldn't change the
index page, since it truely states that you had been the maintainer of
this (old) release. If this should be a problem for you, there is the
possibility to remove the packages index page entirely (if nobody
objects to it for some good reason).
