Request for slackware-current


To the powers that be, I was wondering if we could sneak a new package into current. That being dbus-python.

Current is looking REALLY nice right now. Gnome builders are especially appreciative. Keep up the great work!!

Something else one might consider is updating popt but it isn't all that big of a deal I suppose. Everything seems to be ok with 1.10.x tho.

A big thanks to the Slackware team for all their hard work!

I'd also like to append a few comments to the subject:

1) irssi update? 0.8.12 has been out for quite a while now.
2) mv blackbox-0.70.1 from extra to xap/
3) will xorg-1.4.99.x make it into final 12.1?

Hehe; I actually hadn't seen this - I just knew that dbus-python was needed for the hplip update.

Just as well...

Now if we can just squeeze glib 2.16 in current.... I think hplip needs that as well...

Pat's not doing anything but bug fixes in -current now. No feature
requests until after 12.1 is released. So unless you can show a bug ...

Was kidding... gvfs in 2.22 needs 2.16.x.... No matter. I'll be dumping (and others) at least 10 "gnome" packages when 12.1 comes out. Keeping a glib2 replacement is fine with me.

Can't wait for 12.1... Should be great to build on.
