Hello guys, i'm sorry if this may be considered spam, but i just wanted to compliment all the guys who have helped put together It is a great repository and the people who have maintained it should be proud of them selves for doing a good job at creating such a large repo. The effort is much appreciated, and in the future when more experienced, i hope i can help contribute some quality slackbuilds too.

Good work guys.

I'm in! Also src2pkg....thanks to all.

Is it time for a group hug, or is my fatigue showing?

I agree with the above and I have posted a couple or three slackbuilds ( he says smugly ) and I think every one should try to add at least one slackbuild to the repo.

Rep: Reputation: 4 is an invaluable resource for building
packages to complete the Slackware installation.

I often use it.

Thanks for a site like this.
