Hallo, J,

The README is created from the author/maintainer of the program. The SBO  
maintainer should not change it.

> Currently we see a very wide variety of formats. While the most

> This requires perl-Params-Validate, perl-DateTime-Locale,
> perl-DateTime-TimeZone, perl-Test-Exception, perl-Sub-Uplevel
> perl-Math-Round.

That's another problem - these informations should be put into "install/ 
slack-required". And that could be a job for the SBO maintainer.

Viele Gruesse!
