[Slackbuilds-users] REQUIRES="%README%" revisited

Hello there,

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.
