Given that Berlios is due to disappear shortly, I have started a mirror of the source here: https://bitbucket.org/jmb/noteedit
I have also updated it to compile with a recent version of gcc (it compiles on my up to date ArchLinux box). However, this was done by replacing the build system from the autotools to SCons+sconstools (https://bitbucket.org/jmb/sconstools). The source code modifications should be valid whatever the build system, but the autotools scripts do not work at the moment.
Re: Dependency problems
NoteEdit no longer comes with rpm's. Several distributors like SuSE, Mandriva, Debian/Ubuntu, RedHat (CCRMA) offer packages of NoteEdit. You should ask them about new releases.
NoteEdit requires now KDE3, tse3, the autotools (and dependencies) and of course a backend like lilypond to compile and work.
I tried to install this from the rpm, it required hordes of obscure c++ libs compiled with gcc 2.96, no less.
The packages the RPM listed as needed are practically impossible to get. An updated RPM would benice...
That said,I'll have another go at the tarball.

MIDI Import is handled by the TSE3 library. Make sure
you compile NoteEdit with TSE3 and then chose the
menu item "TSE3"->"MIDI in" and then use the "Filter
dialog" and TSE3 to score. Don't forget to read the
MIDI import discussion section in the documentation.
The interface for editing notes isn't very
intuitive at first, it can get a bit frustrating
adding a note and adjusting its attributes.
Also it dosen't appear mid format IO isn't supported, only on export. It would be nice to
see direct loading of the mid format along
with a more intuitive way to edit notes.
