This project has not been updated in a year. That is a problem for packagers and maintainers of downstream software. @saitoha has gone missing, and no longer posts even on Twitter. Their last action seems to be assigning an issue to themselves in March 2020. This makes them absent for around one year and three months.

Maintainers have a right to disappear without notice, of course. Work on open source is volunteer. However, when it happens, the community of users must decide what to do. I believe enough time has passed for a fork. I nominate myself as lead maintainer, and the fork is at libsixel/libsixel. libsixel is a new organization for this effort, and @saitoha has been added also as a maintainer should they ever reappear. @dankamongmen has been added as a maintainer due to his stewardship of notcurses.

Others who think they have some justification for being maintainer or collaborator in the new organization are welcome to comment. I'll likely add anyone who asks and has any significant contribution.
