[arch-general] Emacs package is too stable?

I recently started using arch linux and the official package for emacs 
is a bit outdated compared to the one provided from Fedora, which is 
where I come from.
I understand that the `emacs` package is intended for stable only, so I 
didn't mark it as outdated.
However, current dev release 25.1 is quite stable, and it would be great 
if it's provided as a binary package, as cloning and building with the 
AUR package is quite a pain.
The stable releases that is available in the extras repo seem like an 
LTS release.
Any plans on packaging for the recent tag releases?
