[Slackbuilds-users] VLC dependencies

As far as I understand, SBo's policy is to only list strict dependencies
in the REQUIRES="" field. Those dependencies that are not strictly
necessary are eventually listed in the text, but not as strict

The VLC SlackBuild seems to be an exception to this policy. It lists an
impressive list of dependencies, but only a fraction of these are
actually strict dependencies.

Suggestion: only list strict dependencies in the REQUIRES="" field, and
list all the extra dependencies in a separate text in the README? This
would spare the hassle of building jack-audio-connection-kit, avahi,
freerdp, etc. just to have a basic VLC.
