Just reported https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/41140

Regarding out-of-date (not updated to the latest version), broken (build 
fails), incomplete (no systemd units), bad name (should be ruby-blah not 
rubyblah) or whatever else can be invented. The package needs to be 
updated no matter the reason for being flagged - thus, auto-orphaned so 
interested people can take care of it. Therefore I don't think 
differentiating between out-of-date, broken or whatever is useful for

Think of "Flag package out-of-date" as "Package needs updating" not 
"Package version is out-of-date".

Kind regards,
