ic. I thought that was only when you checked to notify box. Well there
may always be reasons why the maintainer did not update the package
yet (like depending on an upstream version of a dependency not yet
updated in our repos), so it's always a good habit to check with him.
I think most users appreciate a bit of communication :p

I know you will :) that's why I wrote for future reference.
As you like to have the newest versions in AUR, have you checked the
list of orphans already? Maybe you want to maintain some of them if
you have the time and interest. I'm sure you will find something of
interest in there, and it will be greatly appreciated by other users.
