[Rd] Is xtable still being maintained?

Hi,

I wonder if anyone knows if the xtable package is still actively being maintained? The last update to the CRAN was about 2 years ago. Earlier in the year I found I wanted to use the short caption option of LaTeX tables to display an abridged title in my table of contents. It was a relatively simple change to get xtable to support this. I bundled up my changes and sent the maintainer David B. Dahl an email and I got absolutely no response? What's the etiquette for this kind of situation? I think he's done a sterling job maintaining a really useful package; I wanted to help and contribute to the community but if he's not doing it anymore how can anyone get their improvements / bug fixes into circulation?

Cheers,
Alastair
