I had an idea to improve the information provided to the user and
indicate a clearer picture of the status of a Package via the website.

Package Colours - 6 Major states of a Package
Black - latest version, all ok

Blue - latest version, bug report(s) outstanding

Red - out-of-date

Yellow - out-of-date, new package in Testing

Orange - out-of-date, new package in Testing, bug report(s) outstanding

Purple/Magenta - out-of-date, bug report(s) outstanding

I'm not picky about the colours as long as it seems logical.

Also, I have filed this as a feature request:
 FS#11604 - http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/11604
