To be clear, SBo is not affiliated with or officially endorsed by Slackware. It's a different team and the admins and maintainers are all volunteers. See #1 in the FAQ: https://slackbuilds.org/faq/#affiliation

If it doesn't happen right when 14.2 gets released, it will happen soon afterwards.

Sbopkg (although I've switched to sbotools) takes a bit longer still. But just a bit.

Hi, I'd like to take this opportunity to officially endorse SBo. Nobody ever asked me, as far as I can recall.

I do believe SBo is now officially endorsed; doesn't get more official than this.

Well. F-udge. Now I have to step up my game to make sure my SBo submissions are worthy of this endorsement. I better get crackin' now that we are RC1!

`sbopkg` is always up-to-date if you point it to the master branch. ;^)
