You are correct about this. But, just to wipe out any doubt, yaourt is not
out-of-date, even though it was flagged. People tends to (incorreclty) flag
out-of-date when package fails to build or fails to work, which in a famous
package like yaourt it might happen repeatedly.  Anyway, out-of-date flag
was removed, therefore maintainer is active.
