Searching GMANE (a mailing list archive service) seems helpful, it yields (among others) gmane.linux.acpi.devel, the Linux ACPI Development Discussion List. While I'm not sure if it's where you'll find the developers of acpid, it is mentioned there, so it might be worth a try.

Edit Looking at Debian's packages for the homepage of some project is often helpful, too.
