[Rd] Is xtable still being maintained?

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?
