[arch-general] What's happening about libdjvu?

The package djvulibre now conflicts and provides libdjvu, and libdjvu
disappeared from the repository.

However, judging by the files they provide and the PKGBUILD cached in
my abs directory, I don't think they are the same thing. djvulibre
does not provide the dynamic linked library as libdjvu does and thus
may break other application depending on libdjvu. For instance,
/usr/lib/evince/3/backends/libdjvudocument.so from evince package
links to /usr/lib/libdjvulibre.so.21, which would be removed if I
update the system to allow djvulibre to replace libdjvu.

What's happened to the libdjvu package? Why is it removed from
repository? Should I file a bug report?

Best Regards,
