The whois record shows that it got updated this very night, at 02:18:59 UTC, shortly before Stéphane noticed. I believe the domain just got hijacked. Someone stole or guessed the admin password for the domain, and changed the DNS server info.
 
h4ps.com is a hosting service in Palestine, BTW. There's no reason to think they're directly involved, though.

It's down, indeed; it is a DNS problem. Whois reports gramps-project.org lives in ns1.h4ps.com and ns2.h4ps.com, but these servers know nothing about it.
 
I have looked at www.h4ps.com, but it's all in Arabic. Googling for h4ps.com isn't very reassuring. The owner of the domain (Brian, it seems) should look into it right away.
