There is which I believe has all usable pairs,
released and unreleased.

Yes it does. It contains fields such as:
  "created_at": "2018-03-08T03:04:02Z",
  "updated_at": "2018-04-07T18:41:55Z",
  "pushed_at": "2018-04-07T18:41:53Z",
where pushed_at is what you want.

You can even dump ALL Apertium Github repos and their modification
timestamps with:
...and append ?page=N until there's no more hits.

You mentioned Firefox 31, which is beyond EOL. Even the oldest supported
Debian, Ubuntu, and CentOS have at least Firefox 52.

If nobody has asked me to package it, it's probably not in wide use.

So, I've been very active on the mailing list and IRC for many years. I
hadn't heard about apertium-c-formatters until just now. I've never even
noticed it in the repository. The last code change for that was in 2012.
That's what I would absolutely consider a dead project - nobody had talked
about it, nobody had changed it.

We'll migrate it, now that we know about it.
