Common sense tells me that if we allow people to upload newer packages just
because the repo package is out of date, the AUR will be an even bigger mess
than it already is. Everyone will be uploading packages a few hours after
upstream releases updates, and of course they will just abandon them instead of
having them deleted. The rules are in place for a reason.
