I'm Giovanni Santostefano, a www.slacky.eu
I've programmed with Qt4 a GUI for pkgtool to make visual the package management without renouncing to the slackware philosophy and simplicity.
KSIP is only a frontend to the pkgtool and it's developed with the help and suggestions of slacky users, firts danix that is the webmaster, packager and tester.
I make this annouce because I think the actual 1.6 version is usable but many features are planned for the 1.7 .
The official site is: http://kslackyinfopkg.sourceforge.net/
where is accessible the forum (technical part is in English)
and the download page (not linked to the site yet) is:
If you visit slacky forum you can find in the packages section the topic with the tgz package. We don't link it on the site because there are some issues in the desktop icon descriptor that will be fixed in the 1.6.1
Let me know what you think about ksip project
I'm sorry if this topic may be intented as spam. It's a new GPL project that can help many peoples to manage the system and I hope that many peoples enjoy using it!
