Regardless, this is the aur list, and we shouldn't be talking about this. Suffice to say that if a user has a "faster update" to a package, it's a better idea to mail it along to the official maintainer instead of putting it in the AUR
There is no profile for developers, so it is hard to find the corresponding mail address.
It is true that for this case I am very temped to post a duplicate package on the AUR. My package needs the new version and I don't want to wait for the sky to fall over my head. It is probably the case for the other duplicate packages.
most of the time the miantainer is set in the PKGBUILD itstelf on the first line. For clanlib however this won't bring you any further as the maintainer mentioned there hasn't been active for some time now. Either way, you can always contact one of the other devs if a package is really lagging like this one and he can take care of it or forward it to the other devs.
If it is just an easy rebuild I can take care of clanlib tomorrow, but please stop this discussion here.
