I found Eric Sessoms' blog[0], he writes (via speech recognition  
software), that he cannot type because of tendinitis in his hands. That  
probably explains why he does not answer; maybe someone willing to take  
over maintenance can contact him via Skype or something like that. Other  
packages with his name in the maintainer field:
  - erlang
  - fitsio
  - scgi
