If 1.0.0-rc.3 is why they're flagging it out of date, perhaps you could reply to them and explain why it's not out of date; an rc is a release candidate, but not necessarily a true release. After rc makes its way to a true release, that's when upstream is telling everybody that there's a new release to update to.
imho, if folks want release candidates, a VCS package could always be crafted. I would personally avoid releasing non-vcs rc packages.
At the end of the day; it's really up to the maintainer.

I maintain the gnudatalanguage package on the aur. The current release is 0.9.9 (from 2019); however, there is 1.0.0-rc.3 available on their webpage.
I recall having read somewhere in the docs that pushing rc version is generally discouraged on the aur, but got a out-of-date flagging today.
So the question is simply: Whould it be ok to push 1.0.0-rc.3 to the aur? And if so; how to specify the version tag correctly?
Thanks in advance!
