I'd agree with Heinz: a clarification would be appreciated.  I'd say
that once a package appears in -testing of the stable Slackware
release, it should be removed from the SBo; dependent packages README
files should be pointing then to the -testing package as a

At least this is how I see it from the perspective of qt4 SBo
SlackBuild maintainer: as soon as qt4 appeared in -testing of the
current, I switched to using it.  I guess most of other maintainers
prefer too to see corresponding packages included in the Slackware in
