first some notes:
- this mail should have gone to the aur-general mailinglist
- provide links to all the packages you refer to

further on, i will not merge the packages, since you could have asked
the current maintainer to update the package (to depend on python) and
upload the python2 package with a dependency on python2

so the only thing what needs to happen is Stebalien to update the
package python-whoosh to depend on python and you leave the
python2-whoosh also to Stebalien or Stebalien agrees you maintain the
python2 version.
