Hello Eli,
Thank you for the full answer. So, as a conclusion, to fulfill the
requirements, every dependency must be added to [community] before the
main package, and only after that clickhouse could be added there as well.

That's understandable. Maybe, I could try to implement the regular
buildings for Arch in the repo and then will bring this topic again.

Best regards,
Mikhail f. Shiryaev
