Do you have branches/revisions references for that ?

Any kind of revision will do: revno, revision-id, tag, as long as there
is a public branch for that.

Where ? Do you have urls for them ?

Afaik, that one is orphaned. Any taker ?  ;)

I run that one from trunk.

I know that one is used daily but don't use it myself.

That one is not working ? Wow, that's quite a surprise. What's the issue ?

That one is orphaned too AFAIK. It needs a new maintainer.

Branches/revisions references ?

    > Is there any chance we can get releases cut for the last three?

It mainly depends on how far the branches/revisions you've used are
close to released versions and whether the maintainers are willing to
make new releases.

There are various places where tarballs are hosted in addition to
launchpad: debian, ubuntu, pypi...

If the packages have no maintainers but are not (yet) uploaded to pypi,
tagging a revision, pushing it to launchpad and uploading to pypi may be
the path of least resistance.
