Please users stop abusing of the out-of-date option.
What you SHOULDN'T do: - report as out-of-date a package when a beta or a RC is out - report as out-of-date a package which conflicts - report as out-of-date a package which doesn't build - report as out-of-date a package which is broken - report as out-of-date a package when the mirror you use is out-of-date - and my favorite, report as out-of-date a package which WORKS like this one at the bottom of this mail
What you SHOULD do: - report as out-of-date a package when a *stable* release of that package is out
