Hey, thank *you* Mr P., I was secretly hoping that someone would create such a repo

I promise to push some bug fixes and some new features soon, when the weather here is better for drinking coffee (it's 26.5 today )

Hi! Just come to Gr i will host you... (Here now is 30)
A simple request is to add a way to manual add packages
that have been built with newer versions in other machine
because some SBo script is too old...
And slackrepo to reading without needing to skip with hintfiles.

Thanks again...

Well, you can put VERSION="..." in a hintfile, does this do what you need?
(it is a horrible hack, sometimes it will fail, but usually it will work perfectly

Example 1:
SBo's qtkeychain is 0.1.0
The latest qtkeychain is 0.3.0
=> put this in qtkeychain.hint, it will guess the download URL with sed
Code:
VERSION="0.3.0"
Example 2:
SBo's lyx package is 2.0.4
The latest lyx is 2.1.1, but the download URL can't be guessed automatically
=> put this in lyx.hint
Code:
VERSION="2.1.1"
DOWNLOAD="ftp://ftp.lyx.org/pub/lyx/stable/2.1.x/lyx-2.1.1.tar.xz"
In both examples, if you know the new md5sum then you can add MD5SUM=".....", or else it will ignore the md5sum.
