I finally got all parts together and uploaded version 1:76.0~b1-1 to 
experimental. Due the new binary packages


the upload went to NEW.

For now the lightning package has become an transitional package, I tend 
to drop this package as well once I've digging more into the automatic 
provides thing. Currently packages like webext-tbsync got removed 
instead of staying installed.

If you want to give the new packages a try please keep in mind that you 
should make a backup of your profiles first before starting this beta 
The new versions adds some new configurations keys that are not 
backwards compatible and you won't be able to reuse your profile within 
1:68.x versions.
