The thing is we have to include whatever is a makedep in the repos
(because we provide ABS; nothing to do with AUR). A more precise

== extra ==
gmpc makedepends on vala
midori makedepends on vala
midori optdepends on vala

== community ==
python-matplotlib optdepends on vala
libdesktop-agnostic makedepends on vala
awn-extras-applets makedepends on vala
avant-window-navigator makedepends on vala
shotwell makedepends on vala

As a distro, we only update packages to "latest stable". There are a
few exceptions, especially those that are slow in releasing stable
versions of their software or are generally high-level tools that
rarely break. So if the maintainer of vala does not want to update to
the devel version, it is perfectly reasonable, and correct.
