a/pkgtools-15.1-noarch-5.txz: Rebuilt.
       installpkg, removepkg, upgradepkg: make all of these scripts accept either
       --dry-run or --warn for consistency. Thanks to Brent Spillner.

So what does this mean? It is like a simulation install and doesn't actually install the package?

Just a note for anyone else that was getting confused. The change log entry

is actually from slackware-current, not slackware-15.0.

Try looking in the man pages... on Slackware 15.0 --dry-run is only present in upgradepkg. One can (safely) presume it will have the same meaning in installpkg and removepkg.

Code:
man upgradepkg

OPTIONS
       --dry-run
              Output  a  report about which packages would be installed or upgraded but
              don't actually perform the upgrades.

patches/packages/cups-filters-1.28.17-x86_64-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  [PATCH] Merge pull request from GHSA-gpxc-v2m8-fr3x.
  With execv() command line arguments are passed as separate strings and
  not the full command line in a single string. This prevents arbitrary
  command execution by escaping the quoting of the arguments in a job
  with forged job title.
  Thanks to marav.

patches/packages/curl-8.1.1-x86_64-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This is a bugfix release.
patches/packages/texlive-2023.230322-x86_64-1_slack15.0.txz:  Upgraded.
  This update patches a security issue:
  LuaTeX before 1.17.0 allows execution of arbitrary shell commands when
  compiling a TeX file obtained from an untrusted source. This occurs
  because luatex-core.lua lets the original io.popen be accessed. This also
  affects TeX Live before 2023 r66984 and MiKTeX before 23.5.
  Thanks to Johannes Schoepfer.
