For celebrating Programmers day


How do you think would it be great to have great tool slackpkg+ (http://slakfinder.org/slackpkg+.html) added main Slackware package tree? As on Friday will be Programmers day and its good oportunity to have this done on such a day.

Needs a 4th option for "Consideration taken and waits for Patrick's decision".

It's a good idea to expand SlackPkg's update system to where we could include repositories like AlienBOB's and Robby Workman's, but in all honesty, it breaks from the tradition of having a 3rd party where basically you rsync as needed.

To be honest, it feels like adding slapt and slapt-get which only feel like a redundancy. Don't get me wrong it's an ingenious idea, but it's just not really Slackware...

While I understand your reasoning I think it would be a good fit for /extra since it does de facto only extend slackpkg functionalities (from what I gathered slackpkg was written with this possibility in mind) but it is entirely optional and doesn't add any new layer of complexity.

I would also like to see it in /extra. slackpkg+ can't be redundant with slackpkg, it is a mere plugin for slackpkg.
Alo, speaking about redundancy, I can't see where not having redundancy is a goal of Slackware. Otherwise we would not have several browsers, mail-clients, text editors, ..., and even slackpkg is redundant, since all you can do with it can be done with the other software for package management.

I don't see any relation with introducing a package in Slackware and "programmers day"... Programmer is not the same as "system administrator" or "package manager" or whatever... A programmer writes programs... Why not add all programs in the world ?

Beside, I don't have any preference for slackpkg+ presence: I trust Pat so I tend to agree with ReaperX7...

Cheers.

Garry.
