Binary package hint: lesstif2

The lesstif2 package has been updated in Debian to version 0.95.0-2.3. The previous Ubuntu change which fixed an reverted scroll wheel binding is now literally included in the Debian package:
   * debian/patches:
    - Add 031_fix_inverted_scrollwheel.diff by Kacper Wysocki, fix
      invalid mouse scroll wheel bind (Closes: 396199)
      -- http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?\

Original message:
Binary package hint: lesstif2

Recently I have invested quite some time to prepare a debdif for
lesstif2 [0] to help the maintainer in Debian. Lesstif, which had low
threshold NMU preference set, did not have a regular update in 1.5 years
and definitely could use some attention. In my debdif I solved the
following debian bugs: 396199, 479779, 503361, 314440, 43640, 87745,
356017, 496081 and 330057 by patching the code with patches available
from upstream, Fedora and the BTS. I included the debdif in debian bug
#522157 [1] on the April 1. I tried already before that date to contact
the current maintainer, but apart from a short conversation on IRC I he
doesn't respond (although he seems present on IRC). In that conversation
he was interested in the debdif.

I also intend to work with upstream (nearly dead by the looks of it, but
I got commit rights) to improve the source code and eventually a new
point release. Unfortunately that will be somewhat slow because I am
unfamiliar with the code.

Because I am not sure about how Debian will react, I also prepared a
very similar debdiff for Ubuntu (which can be dropped when Debian does
process my debdiff there and Ubuntu syncs), which solves the bugs 340633
and 124573, and maybe also bugs 110404 and 366835.

With kind regards,
