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[1]:

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 
to libevent.

He should upload as libevent2 without conflicting with the current libevent1
