confused about iojs installation using slpkg

I tried to install Atom last night. the version of iojs was 3.1; Atom failed on current. I could not determine why. I updated slpkg and tried again for the newer version went on slackbuilds.
But iojs reversed to 2.5 on slackbuild.
It's OK.

slpkg downloaded the 2.5 version. But when it was decompressing it, it shows the iojs 3.1.0.
I got confused.

I cleared the cache manually by rm -r /tmp/slpkg/build/iojs*

Now it downloaded iojs 2.5 again (It downloaded last time too). But again it searchs for /tmp/slpkg/build/iojs/iojs-v3.1.0.tar.xz

The full output:
#slpkg -s sbo iojs

Have a look at this thread:

Use node instead of iojs like Ponce said, and add the sed command to the SlackBuild like I said. Put the sed command before the line that says "if [ "$DISABLE_METRICS" == "yes" ]; then".

iojs works, and is recommended (atom will run faster). Why don't you try manually installing? I think slpkg is confused and you should report this as a bug.

I wonder how iojs-v3.1.0 version found in the directory /tmp/slpkg/build/iojs/ ? This folder is used by slpkg and sbo repository to build packages but the only version is iojs-v2.5.0.

I think you forgot to update package lists with '# slpkg update'
