Description: It seems that after the last change in the gnome-python PKGBUILD as it removes packages used in other programs.

I'm talking about this update that removes some uses packages from repository:

Examples of broken packages (AUR). Check latest comments:

gsieve 0.2-2

system-config-lvm 1.1.18-4

Installing system-config-lvm and running crashes it:
$ system-config-lvm
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/system-config-lvm", line 50, in <module>
import gnome
ImportError: No module named gnome

I would like to know if there is any reason to remove those packages, and if there is a replacement for those programs that broke with their removal.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a bug
Additional comments about closing:  they were explicitly, deliberately removed, which answers your first question, and maintainers of broken AUR packages are perfectly welcome to add new AUR packages to fix their stuff, which answers your second question.
