sorry for my late 2 cents, but I think flagging-out-of-date should only be used
if the package really is out of date, which cannot be the case for git-packages.
A comment with the correct PKGBUILD should be enough for now. However, there are
different opinions about that.

Btw. the maintainer of snaked-git did not incorporate suggestions made in the
AUR comments, did he? If not, it could be avisable to write a PM withe the link
to the PKGBUILD to him.

Best Regards Stefan.
