##slackware-help community support update

Posted 04-07-2018 at 06:09 PM by ttk

There is a ravenbot in ##slackware-help now providing one-line summaries of Slackware64-current ChangeLog entries as they appear:

2018-04-07 15:01:49 * ravenbot ChangeLog updated: 10 packages: btrfs-progs-v4.16, sysstat, kdev-python, exiv2, glib, glib2, pango, slang, dhcpcd and 1 more
It also notes kernel versions when there's a kernel upgrade, counts CVEs when an update patches security vulnerabilities, and gets appropriately excited when it detects a new Slackware stable release :-)

Next on my ##slackware-help to-do list: integrating the bot with the Slackbook, LQ's Slackware forum, and the chat log of previously seen/solved problems. Just simple search for now, with the goal of making it into something like an "expert system".

    Thanks :-) I worry that spreading myself too thin puts projects like ##slackware-help in jeapordy, so your words of encouragement are appreciated.
