Since it seems you have put so much work and time into that package, I guess 
you deserve at least an honest reply ;-)

I'm not familiar with the lesstif2 concepts and internals, which doesn't seem 
to be trivial at all, so I wouldn't be able to properly review and upload, but 
I think that, in general, before putting considerable amount of work into 
whatever neglected or understaffed package, it is a good idea to sound the 
interest and intentions of your prospective sponsors. That might eventually 
avoid wasting sponsoree's own time. Otherwise, taking care of such packages is 
very welcome, indeed, so I hope you find a proper sponsor!
