while for virtualbox Arch Linux does follow upstream, even while there
is a critical known USB issue, for Claws Mail, where AFAIK isn't a
critical issue, it doesn't follow upstream.

"Stable release 3.11.1 (October 27, 2014; 23 days ago)" -
"Latest Release: 3.11.1 (News), on 27 October 2014" -
$ pacman -Si claws-mail | grep Ver
Version : 3.11.0-2
I try to understand this, but I can't understand it. Is there latitude
for the maintainers to decide what is an official release from upstream
and what isn't?
The Claws package isn't a problem for me.
$ pacman -Q claws-mail-git
But the virtualbox package is really an annoyance.
