The thing is, there's no point in having two packages providing the same
thing. It isn't good for anyone.

If you can't build python-clutter and you know how to solve it (since you
packaged the same thing) just post your PKGBUILD in pastebin and leave it in
the comments. If the maintainer does not answer and doesn't update the
package, than I'm sure someone will orphan it so that you can adopt this

I'm sorry that your package has been removed and I'm replying just because I
was the one suggesting it (even though I didn't pick the one to be deleted),
but you must understand this is the only way everyone can have a proper
pyclutter package.
