Yes, of course, sorry for the that and the resulting confusion.

They IMHO should be rebuild because
- this way we notice that packagers are still alive and active (maybe
some packages are orphaned and we simply don't know about it yet).

- some noarch packages might not build anymore because foo or bar
changed in between (modular X.org for example). Yeah, maybe that's
unlikely, but we all know computers and linux well enough and know that
things like that happen.

Other opinions?
