All packages that are adequately tested move from testing to patches (upgrades) or extra.  This one is now in extra so the source code follows:

I've removed the link Bigpaws posted.  We don't post package links and haven't in a very long time.  Only source code links are posted.  If you download using the link to the package you won't get any of the dependencies and the software won't work.  If you want to install wicd please use slapt-get or gslapt.

I checked and it seems Vector still hasn't posted the source code.  He said he would but probably got busy and forgot.  The link I posted WILL BE the correct link.  Next time I chat will Vector I will remind him.
