There is no-one maintaining get-iplayer at the moment. GitHub has been configured to automatically close issues with no human intervention. dinkypumpkin does say that if you have a bug fix, he will merge it, but new features won't be merged unless you wish to take over as maintainer.

See https://github.com/get-iplayer/get_iplayer/commit/34f400ac391bdc1880362420b266d349b86621c7 and https://github.com/get-iplayer/get_iplayer/wiki/contribute#code
