Slackware Project


Hi,

I use slack for quite a while and I love it.
Here is a great forum, so I will try my luck here.

Where can I find information about the development and the slackware project ?

I think I could help a little at it, maybe with translate or something simple.


I already sent a e-mail to the address of the guys at Slackware.org but got no answer.


Thanks.


Kassim

Hi Kasim,

Slackware tends to use vanilla packages, which means 'not modified', so translations and such for packages used by Slackware may eventually end up being used in Slack.

A couple of sites comes to mind for me that may want help with translations:
http://www.slackbook.org/translations.html
http://tldp.org/

Or do a search for 'home sites' for packages used in Slackware and see if they are looking for help.

Regards,
John

You are using the incorrect domain name. The proper domain is slackware.com.

Additionally, if not with the stock slackware, you can always help with slackbuilds (www.slackbuilds.org). Their mailing list is quite active.
