First don't top post

SlackBuilds is SBo do not donwload anything. Sources should be simply
ifentified in .info file with a direct download link (but that's not
posible always like TrueCrypto) with md5sums of the download sources,
SlackBuilds build packages automaticly. Their duty  is not downloading
source nor checking md5sums.
