pkgsrc on slackware


I read a how-to on how to use pkgsrc on slackware. What are the pros and cons using it? What does it change on long-run and so on?

Since there hasn't been any replies, I presume hardly no one has tried using pkgsrc with Slackware, let alone the long-run usage. I found this article, you may not have seen it yet:

I know that already. That's got me interrested about this at the beginning. Just wanted to know if there were any up-to-date packages from slack in there as the site is written for 9.1 I recall.
