Building some software this morning, I noticed it failing to build bzip2 due to the download release page, and in fact the entire site, being gone entirely (looks like the whois registration expired). The 1.0.6 release for example.
Anyone know of any alternative canonical source of the bzip2 releases, or indeed any way to contact the bzip2 maintainers (since they had bzip.org email addresses, which no longer work). I have been previously unsuccessful in submitting patches to them (no mailing list, and private email went unanswered); but since this is an important package it would be nice to be sure it's kept available.
