If this list is released say 2 or 3 weeks prior to freeze, sorting and listing
out ones that have newer versions available can be done, alongwith reasons for
skipping updation. This would help is finalizing atleast some packages
hopefully.

The work toll can be reduced by excluding lib* (172) individually, because
most primary package would also require latest associated lib.

Current aports/main (1512)
So current stat for change is approx 50% between v2.4 and v2.5

I would not suggest 'edge/testing' as full list to be considered for this
comparision.
Individual testing/reporting and gradually moving to main suits best.

Some discrepancies I could spot easily by just comparing the lists (v2.4 and
edge/main)
1. udisks 2.0 is available - its depends (dbus) updated far ahead
2. util-linux-v2.22.1 - important package, that should be updated

Other packages may skip updation depending on importance or constrains.
I also noticed packages that were build more than a year back, which means it
has likely not changed 2 major releases.

Not in x86 - only x86_64 (may not be an issue)
1. libunwind
2. rxmtp
3. xf86-video-geode
