The HOMEPAGE and SRC_URI for dev-util/rej are gone, and it appears to be rather difficult to track down the Chris Mason <email@example.com> who wrote it. The [URL] seems to refer to the same person. There seems to be a Chris Mason at cmu.edu, but it's unknown whether he's the same person.
The utility is still potentially useful, so I don't want to remove it. What do you think I should do in response to this bug?
What you could do is change HOMEPAGE to reflect upstream's status - maybe make www.gentoo.org the HOMEPAGE, or dev.gentoo.org/~dsd :)
The SRC_URI is invalid anyway and should probably be changed to mirror://gentoo/foo.

HOMEPAGE must not be set to www.gentoo.org, because this is not the upstream project page
SRC_URI must not be mirror://gentoo, because the gentoo mirror is no valid source
