Hi Phil,

Thank you for filing the bug.  I am reassigning it to
pseudo-package so the FTP can process the removal.

There is one reverse build dependency, liblein-clojars-clojure
(src:lein-clojars) that will also need to be removed.  Since that is a
leaf package that only appears useful in conjunction with Leiningen, I
will request its removal as well.
