Is there any volunteer to upgrade GhostScript?

I'm unable to upgrade some of my packages that are incompatible with < 9.15.

I started working on an update, but It's too complex to do it fast and
I'm catching other deadlines.

Among others I was stuck with mappingresources4pdf_2unicode which are
now being unversioned zip files on github
(and please don't ask me why the weird packaging)

I'm not sure if it is possible to store
somehow or use some other trick.

Thank you,
