As of 2018-12-07, electrum is no longer part of the testing distribution (in preparation for the buster release), so the feature/buster branch no longer builds.

I’ve just commented on the Debian bug report which triggered its removal (https://bugs.debian.org/912042#10 & https://bugs.debian.org/912042#15); as mentioned in my second comment, I’ll drop electrum from the feature/buster branch for the moment. If you want it to get enabled again, better make sure the RC bug is fixed in Debian (or downgraded to a non-RC severity if that’s appropriate), and to update this bug report so that we can possibly add it back to the package list.

Patch seems fine.

It should mention, that it is reverting 282920f0e2cdf6f7483e90c8b4ce2ce8dda80cf6 and 483c87dd82d35fa4aacf73911a34c4cbd043ca98 too (for config/chroot_local-patches/persistence-setup_disable-electrum.diff). With that information it is easier to spot that you are reverting three commits in total.

Other than that: You can merge this on.
