I did find one on github, which reads DEPRECATED in big fat letters at the top and has an updated f5rancid version which does tmsh, but an older build number so I'm a bit confused now.

there are two versions of the f5 support ing 3.6.x that are chosen by
device type.  f5 or bigip.  please see etc/rancid.types.base
