Do you get mails from the mailing list?  Otherwise it's probably time to
complain to their mailing list admin.

It worked for me when I sent Sam Hocevar personal emails and/or
contacted him through IRC, he used to be sam on freenode.

Nowadays I mostly go through Steve L'Homme, he is a VLC committer and
can commit to libdvdcss as well.  He is robUx4 on freenode and often
hangs out in the #ffmpeg channel.  He has funneled our last set of
libdvdcss patches into their repository.
