Well, *they* must be new but that kind of discrepancies has always
been around [1][2][3] and mainly by the lack of such standards and the
lack of consistency by us, the community.

SBo's admins have made a good job in keeping the project alive during
all this *five years*(?) but (this has been said already) we should
keep an eye in our submits/updates to make less hard the work to them
and at the same time make less error prone our SlackBuils.

So in few words: ch3cK 0u7 uR 5oobm175 m0th3rf00ck3r5!!!
