[Slackbuilds-users] sbopkg and the README/.info files (REQUIRES line)

Because it wasn't a change in sbopkg itself, I forgot to include a note
in the NEWS file about the new REQUIRES line in the .info file. Sbopkg
has long provided the ability to use queuefiles and that doesn't change,
so users are free to generate queues using the new .info info. Perhaps
the gitorious queuefile repo will make use of this. Sbopkg has also long
provided access to both the README and the .info files either from the
command line or the dialog UI. Unfortunately, at least for now, the user
will have to start using that capability of looking at the .info file in
addition to the README to get all the information since the dependency
data has been removed from the README.

Thanks to elesmod in #sbopkg for reminding me of this.
