The sourceforge site has been stating the truth for a while now.

I think the best way to have people use your code is to put it into a new
package and put it up on PyPI. If it keeps up compatibility with the PyXML
marshaller, the better. That will allow users of the marshaller package
(however many there may be left) to easily migrate to your package.
