It was updated after it was flagged. I haven't checked if the packages
have been updated or not before sending the list.

It looks like a user abused the flag out-of-date functionnality:

"The user provided the following additional text:

Neither the name nor description reveal what purpose this package has.

Should not a description be descriptive enough on ArchLinux packages?

kernel modules for what? Linux? which one?"

All virtualbox packages had a similar message.  BTW, I have all the
users' messages when they flag a package. If you don't understand why
a package was flagged, ask me and I'll check.
