I've already opened a bug for its removal.

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=377942

Currently it does block to closure of the RC bug #300421.


From the sounds of Michael Koch efforts (see #374242), GNU Electric
requires the Sun JVM. A classic "Java trap".


I'm inexperienced when it comes to these matters. If you think it is a
good idea to give this upstream unmaintained code in, then fine.

I've quickly prepared an NMU:
http://hendry.iki.fi/debian/unstable/electric_6.05-2.2_i386.changes

I've tested it too. It seems fine under lesstif2.

Could someone please sponsor it?

Best wishes,
