Upstream is not dead, has been moved to new homepage http://www.ode.org/ with new version hosted on bitbucket:
Please update ASAP.
Sorry for the typo, ode.org is not the new homepage, you can still use it but the bitbucket link is the latest.
Thanks for the bug report, unfortunately updating ode is tricky, as it trends to break things, using it. So it requires coordination with all users + testing. No idea when I'll get around to working on this.
If you've time, you could help by preparing an update and testing it with machineball, stormbaancoureur and xmoto at a minimum.
Marking this as a dup of the upstream-release-monitoring filed one, as I'm not sure if upstream-release-
monitoring is smart enough to deal with doing things the other way around.
