What are the structural requirements for a slate roof can my 12:12 roof supported by 2x6's support a slate roof?

Have you read the Slate Roof Bible and the issue of weight?

Good Evening,

Slate (and Tile) are much heavier than Composition. How is a composition roof structure usually reinforced before installing a slate (or tile) roof?
