I propose clean up the orphaned packages as well. There are many 
packages (about 900) that are orphan and also flaged as out of date. Aur 
is becoming a cementary of old packages, many people abandon packages 
that aren't need them anymore, or just have been dropped by their 
original developers.

One way can be delete all the packages that have been outdated for about 
a year and have 2 months orphaned. Its a idea, there can be other 
criteria. But, please consider thoroughly if the packages haven't been 
updated in one year and have months orphan is very likely that isn't 
used by anybody.
