There is also another package requesting the name ted - #605503. The
package should be renamed to something more unique.

Your message didn't successfully change the title of the bug - please
see bugs.debian.org for details on how to do that *if* it is your
intention to do all the Debian packaging work for this package.

#502776 gives the reasons for removal. The previous maintainer requested removal.

The problems described in #501638 would mean that the package would not
be allowed back into Debian unless fixed.
