Flagging Packages

If you notice that a package is out-of-date (i.e., there is a newer bugfix release available), then please notify us by using the Flag button in the Package Details screen. This will notify the maintainer(s) responsible for that package so they can update it. If the package is unmaintained, the notification will be sent to a developer mailing list.

The message box portion of the flag utility is meant for short messages only. If you need more than 200 characters for your message, then file a bug report, email the maintainer directly, or send an email to the dev mailing list with your additional text.

Note: Please do not use this facility if the package is broken! Use the bugtracker instead.
