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.
