It seem like Tournier Jérôme (Idealix) has moved them here in May 2007:

But in the commit list archives there seem not to be a single message.
There is something in the tech list, but the last message is from Nov 15
and unanswered.

Maybe Jerome can tell if he plans to actually maintain these scripts or
he dropped. Unfortunately I couldn't find an email address to contact
