[Haskell-cafe] Anyone familiar with Hpysics?

I recently found the physic library/engine Hpysics. It looks really
nice and would like to use it for a project, because it's more natural
to use in Haskell, than Bullet is.

The problem with the library, seems to be, that it doesn't seem, like
it retrieved a lot of maintainer attention lately, e.g. after
downloading it, I had to fix some type errors in the library (some
incompatibility to GL floats), to get it working.

The author field in the .cabal file lacks an email, so I can't contact
him and ask if he still cares about the package.

Given that there doesn't seem to be an active maintainer and I need the
package, I would be willing to take over its maintenance.

The documentation is not really verbose about most stuff, so there are
some things, where I don't know how they are supposed to work.

Is there maybe someone, who was involved in writing the library or
maintaining it, or someone, who just used it and can help me, with
getting it in shape again, or maybe someone, who still feels
responsible for it and just didn't update it, because there was no

PS: The package can be found on http://code.haskell.org/hpysics/, but
not on hackage (another reason, why I believe it's not actively
mantained anymore).
