        <h3>Flagging Packages</h3>
        <p>If you notice that a package is out-of-date (i.e., there is a newer
        <strong>stable</strong> release available), then please notify us by
        using the <strong>Flag</strong> button in the <em>Package Details</em>
        screen.  This will notify the maintainer(s) responsible for that
16
17
        package so they can update it. If the package is unmaintained, the
        notification will be sent to a developer mailing list.</p>
