Package: arduino
Version: 0018+dfsg-6
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

It is not possible to upload an Arduino program ("sketch") because the
USB connection ("serial port") is not found. In fact, the menu item
Tools > Serial port appears grey because none can be selected. After
reviewing several entries in the Arduino forum, it seems to be an
unsolved problems in Linux systems, apparently caused by a lack of a
driver not included in the dependencies.

Closing since fixed in development release, but it is still present in
squeeze. It is not serious enough for a stable update, or though
perhaps a backport may be warranted.
