And I clementine. I haven't used it in ages, it has several open
issues, and is built from a git branch to support qt5. There is an
active fork named strawberry with proper qt5 support, maintained by
Antonio in [community]. I believe we can drop clementine to AUR unless
someone wants to take care of it until they finally decide to release
something with qt5 support and less bugs.
