I'm sure that there are people willing. Many already help with development and testing.

Indeed, who needs a gf when you have Slackware. It's all that I need ... plus a good computer to run it on.

I can only speculate, but we know the upcoming changes in KDE (and maybe even in XFCE) will cause some upheavel in the rest of the system. So they are probably testing like crazy behind the scenes but not satisfied enough to push it out.

Actually (but don't spread it around), from the beginning of April next year, there will be a new release every month. This is to get one up on Ubuntu & Fedora. And the releases will be given alliterative animal names, but with 3 parts. The first one will be Awfully Ambiguous Aardvaark. The stable(?) release will be renamed -current, and the -current renamed -OMGifthisworksitwillbeamiracle!

I feel a strong smell of Linux-PAM, from Patrick's kitchen ...

Unfortunately, Linux-PAM boil hard, so we have to wait.

I have read somewhere that Patrick dislikes PAM. However, I guess developers can change their minds with the time.

Is there any reason to think that PAM is being cooked, or it is just speculation?

By the way, I don't feel I need another Slackware by the moment. For me, Patrick can take three years to release the following version, if he wants. I prefer a slow but reliable release cycle than a rushed but unstable product. The main reason I use Slackware right now is that I got fed up with distributions of the second category.
