But I fear you forgot to Cc: the original poster. I'm doing it now.

Unfortunately, animal is being dismissed, as that university
department is moving everything from Unix to NT. It should be a mirror
of ftp.prosa.it, but I have no control of it any more.
Also the official site, ftp.prosa.it/pub/gpm (which is working, I just
checked) is at risk, depending of what happens of the prosa group now
that linuxcare dropped them from the company.
Recent versions (but not patches), have been uploaded to
metalab.unc.edu, to be sure they survive. Also, yesterday I began
setting up stuff on my personal host, gnu.systemy.it. Gpm is not
there but it will get there shortly, including the patches.
Anyway, you should always refer to the source code of your
distribution, unless you want to contribute new material. Sources
associated to the distribution have three advantages: they are always
there, they are easily found (e.g, in debian: "apt-get source gpm")
and the match what you are currently running.
BTW: This list is at risk as well, but since I'm on good relationship
with the Prosa people, I'll get at least a redirector to the new host
if my lists are to be closed.
