The most frustrating thing about this is that they don't even need to do any work - they just need to make a statement saying "we allow linux distros to package and redistribute spotify". That's the reason it's in the AUr but not the official repo - the AUR package has your computer download directly from spotify, which is why it broke for a while.
Spotify, please just say yes so all the linux distros can make proper packages freely.
+1 - another premium user here and I would like to see it properly available on Arch Linux.
The author has made a courteous, well reasoned and workable request which makes sense from a marketing perspective. Nevermind also being inclusive and progressive/forward-thinking - seems like an intuitive action for Spotify.
