Making a SlackBuild script download from a repository instead of a tarball
Does anyone have a simple how-to on how to modify an existing slackbuild from slackbuilds.org to check source out of a git repo instead of downloading a tarball? Slackbuild in question is 'scantailor'.
I could just change the 'info' file to point to a git snapshot URL, but I would have trouble with the version numbers and tarball checksums needing manual updating, no?
