I have noticed several packages that have been flagged out of date, but they are not. The stated reason for the flag will be a problem the user has with the PKGBUILD that is unrelated to the program's version or if the package can be built. I did not see anything in the wiki directly addressing this, so, being relatively new to contributing to the AUR I was curious if this is considered appropriate. At least one package also has an orphan request referencing the flag, which seems misleading to me if the flag should only be used for alerting the maintainer and users to a new version upstream.
I have purposely not included package names to avoid calling out anyone publicly.
The page to flag packages out of date specifically says it's for new updates only not for bug reports and such.
