I noticed that you still indicate that Electric "depends" on 
Lesstif.  Sadly, there are some bugs in Lesstif that make it undesirable, 
and I have updated Electric's recommended widget set to be "Motif" (the 
free version, Open Motif).  The two packages are completely 
interchangeable, so I don't think you need to rebuild the "deb" package (or 
do you?) just update the web site.

Version: 6.05-4+rm

The electric package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/300096 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
