[packman] Packaging request - VidCutter

Hello everybody, recently I came across an easy to use application to 
cut/edit/trim and join videos that has quite impressed me. It's simple, 
very quick and does the job very efficiently. It is called VidCutter, 
written in Python3 and uses FFmpeg as backend. The GUI is similar to the 
good old DVBCut and even works in a similar way. Sadly the development 
of DVBCut has stopped many years ago and the program can only handle 
MPEG2 and is therefore unable to edit HD-recordings. VidCutter is in 
active development and so far I've tested it with mainly TV-recording in 
720p and 1080i and it worked flawlessly. Every videoformat FFmpeg can 
work with should be no problem to edit for VidCutter. The videos are 
saved/exported in the same format as the sourcematerial and VidCutter 
doesn't to any re-encoding which would result in a quality-loss. It 
simply copies the edited parts of your video when you click "Save 
Video". Encoding is only done on the cutpoints (if necessary) and the 
process is fast and leaves the quality of the video completely unchanged.

Here's the website of VidCutter: http://vidcutter.ozmartians.com/
The program has very few dependencies: ffmpeg, python3-qt5, 
Building requires: python3-devel, python3-setuptools

In my humble opinion VidCutter would be a great addition for Packman and 
a very useful tool and sooner or later maybe even a replacement for the 
meanwhile very outdated DVBCut which only works with MPEG2.

Thank you very much for your time and maybe parts of the following 
spec-file or parts can be used to save you some time (if someone is 
interested to package vidcutter for Packman):
