As such, dhcpcd will soon need a new maintainer.
I will try and make a new release, with some fixes and address some outstanding issues on this list, but as with all things in life there are no guarantees.
If I do make one I will tweet it https://twitter.com/rsmarples
and try to do a github release as well.

Ido Rosen has agreen to maintain dhcpcd moving forwards.
I've created the Network Configuration organisation on GitHub and transferred my repositories there.

I wish him well for the future and will assist if I can, but I won't make any more releases myself.

Good luck Ido!
