Hi David,

We actually have that for the BuildRequires, but not for the Requires. I 
added it now. I am wondering whether we should add all the BuildRequires 
by default as Requires as well.

Fact is that the Requires are being added by RPM automatically (based on 
use/require statements) but often those do not contain version 
information. While the META.yml does contain that information.

I think we should improve that.

Thanks for the feedback, a future build will contain this fix.
