A while ago there was a discussion about the %README% option that didn't
really result in a clear conclusion. Yet, I noticed that the option has
been removed from my Exim SlackBuild's info.
So, what's the official stance on the purpose of %README%?
As I see it, Exim fits either way of interpreting what the %README% is
supposed to do. The package conflicts with Slackware's Sendmail, so
automatic tools should stop here and prompt the user with the README
before building and installing. And there's an optional depedency on
Some clarification would be appreciated.
