This is totally and completely wrong. The version number changes on each 
commit, are you claiming that the PKGBUILD needs updated for each 
commit? Even if you're talking about a major/minor version change, just 
rebuild the package and it updates. That's your responsibility, the 
package isn't out of date unless it doesn't build because of upstream
