Hı Cristiano,

You can disable the Metasearch plugin so that QGIS doesn't look for 
requests on start up. Each Python plugin has its own dependencies, so 
depending on which plugins are activated, a user might need more 
SlackBuilds installed than what the base QGIS requires.

If users think that Metasearch is important (I've never used it), I 
could add python-requests to the REQUIRES for the QGIS SlackBuild.

Best, Ben
