I'll admit that I'm not a true Slacker but am UKian and tend to notice a lot of fellow Europeans (politics is not geography or culture).

Don't forget about rworkman in the US

That being said, I miss being in Germany (and traveling around Europe). I was there for 5 years and it was awesome!

Y think this one of my first little contrib to slackware

Fri Feb 15 22:46:52 UTC 2013

l/polkit-0.105-i486-4.txz: Rebuilt.
Reverted a patch that set the members of the wheel group as the
authorized administrators. On Slackware, root is the administrator
and the wheel group is mostly unused. Thanks to GM.

I get suspicious when a Rumanian mentions my blood - I've seen all the Dracula films.

You see, in the States everything is "awesome" (newly "great"), in the UK it's "absolutely fantastic" and in Europe it "just works",
the latter perfectly defining Slackware, hence the high adoption in the rather "pragmatic" Europe. Besides, our beloved BDFL's surname has a Germanic origin, that's in case you haven't noticed

I've always looked upon Slackware as a perfect tool to build something upon/with, load it - much like fire&forget and then just focus on the goal, no "playing" around.
It just works!
