In a program I am packaging, there was a clause where the users were
requested to cite a relevant article when publishing the results. I
enquired about this to the upstream author, and he confirmed that by
"requested" they did not mean "required".
Do you think that the same interpretation would hold true in the case of
the above clause?
Have a nice day,
