[slurm-users] Substituions for "see META file" in slurm.spec file of 15.08.11-1 release

Yours are probably simple enough:

Name: slurm
Version: 15.08.11
Release 1

which becomes slurm-15.08.11-1
You may see some issues with License and/or changelog as the format of 
SPEC files changed a little awhile back, so the latest rpmbuild may not 
like things.

However, I highly suggest you upgrade.. for so many reasons.
