That link just points me to the talk page for the extension,
i.e. the anchor seems to not exist.

We cannot do that because we need to track the 1.19 branch,
which (I just checked) has not received any updates. (Otherwise
I’d have made an upload to experimental for you to test.)

That’s a blob link, which is also not helpful. If you can point
out a (or more) commit(s) to fix the problem, I can apply them
locally to our package and upload that for testing by you.
