Not much we can do about this in AUR. I wonder why users are not supposed to file bug reports for outdated packages. I think it would actually help people gauge how important certain packages are.
- be globally readable and writable.
- allow users to post updated PKGBUILDs.
- allow developers to provide comments on why packages are out of date
- help ensure that out of date notices don't get lost in the
maintainer's mountain of other email, or wherever they go.
I am in favor of this. Or maybe instead of having people report it in that manner, have archweb automatically file a bug report when a user marks it out of date.
