[aur-general] swiften-git, spectrum2-git

I'd like to update the swiften-git [1] so it can be used again with 
spectrum2-git [2], both are orphaned.
The upstream master of swift is no longer compatible with spectrum2.
The swiften-git package is only used by spectrum2-git.

To reflect the change from master to swift-2.x branch I'd like to change 
the name of of the swiften package

   swiften-git -> swiften2-git

and change the depencency of spectrum2-git accordingly.
With that, I'd like to request removal of the swiften-git package, as 
soon as swiften2-git is in place and spectrum2-git reflects this change.

The proposed new PKGBUILDS are:

swiften2-git https://gist.github.com/gdkags/08c0c9d42443e98eb4ff
spectrum2-git https://gist.github.com/gdkags/6df5cb155356b7a9caee

I do hope that I did everything according to AUR guidelines; packages 
were checked namcap.
Dependencies were updated according to namcap output, they seemed sane 
to me, especially the deps that already were satisfied. PKGBUILDs were 
not modified except necessary changes.

Also: are there optional makedeps? libcommuni can be used, but only if 
it is already installed. How does one reflect this? Same for mariadb.

Feel free to correct any mistakes. This would be my first submissions so 
newbie mistakes are not out of the question.
