Sadly, this appears to be the case. Perhaps it can be moved to github and interested people can contribute but it will still need a project leader.

I've seen no response to this, which is still happening to me today, nearly
9 months later:

Updating '.':
svn: E170013: Unable to connect to a repository at URL
'svn://sylpheed.sraoss.jp/sylpheed/trunk' svn: E000110: Can't connect to
host 'sylpheed.sraoss.jp': Connection timed out

The bug tracker is full of spam [1], according repository browser [2]
there's no commit since 2020-05-29 (15 montjs ago), and, finally, last
Hiroyuki mail to this list was a successful test on 2020-11-26 (9 months

I know pandemic is still hitting hard, and I really hope Hiroyuki is fine
and healthy, but with all these facts, is this project still alive?
