Luckily by the time I read this Eric has already seen my message on the
YAPC list, or someone alerted him (thanks !). He already fixed the issues
and contacted me. Thank you!

Casey, you are right I could have done a lot more research trying to
track him down. I could have asked around if anyone knows Eric and
has his contact and then waited a month.
