If I may offer an alternative, you could check it into a public git
repository (I personally am not a fan of the big ones- github,
bitbucket, etc.- as I like to host my own, but to each their own) *as
long as* you provide proper credit to original author and a copy of the
GPL (if the original tarball doesn't provide it). If it's truly licensed
by the author under the GPL, this should suffice the GPL redistribution
requirements unless I'm mistaken (and someone please correct me if I'm not).
It looks like the website's been totally rehauled(?) and the project
abandoned(?), which actually can be an advantage- you wouldn't need to
merge in changes often.
Anyways, you can do all that and then build a -git package.
