There's a git repository here:

Presumably you would then just run the install script included, put it at the top or /etc/rc.d/rc.4 and configure it as the Archwiki says.

Just running the install script is never a good idea. There is a reason for package management.

Have a look at:

should be brainless to make your own package following that or better yet writing your own slackbuild? and maybe sharing via sbo! ( notice the tutorial )

If you choose to submit you also might want to have a look at this or sed -e 's/slim/cdm/g' README.SLACKWARE ?
