[Slackbuilds-users] Pokerth and its queue

Still, I have came up short in the explanation. The queue file came from 
14.2. The requires file came from Ponce's repo. I used the repo files 
and used each and every build for those requires, then the pokerth build 
lastly from Ponce's repo.

So I guess the next logical question would be if there is a way to call 
a queue from the repo, or create one. That's why I said I would use the 
requires from now on. If a build fails from a secondary dependency, it 
will be in the log.
