i don't see that email in aur-general and i wonder how did you got it.
he said he didn't broke any guidelines. I do remember somebody saying
that libeven 2.0.10 was uploaded AS libevent.
Copy/pasting from aur guidelines:
Check [core], [extra], and [community] for the package. If it is inside
any of those repositories in ANY form, DO NOT submit the package (if the
current package is broken or is lacking an included feature then please
file a bug report in FlySpray).
This restriction is there because a lot of users are using yaourt/clyde
who checks for updates from aur and if the build has the same package
name, it would pull it and install, breaking his applications that links
He should upload as libevent2 without conflicting with the current libevent1
