It was removed a couple of weeks ago after being up for adoption for
four years.  See <http://bugs.debian.org/107808> for details.

At this point, you can follow the procedure for creating a new package
outlined at <http://people.debian.org/~mpalmer/debian-mentors_FAQ.html>.
Note that <http://bugs.debian.org/src:diskless> lists a number of bugs.
It may be simpler to port your customizations to lessdisks...
