Four:
  • Pat

  • volkerdi
  • Johnson
Of course there are also contributors, but no official list of them that I am aware of.

All one and the same, including Johnson.
Long story, maybe someone else is interested in tracking down the series of posts that resulted in that appellation.

While Patrick is the BDFL, I don't think it's accurate to say he's the only person who works on Slackware development. There is a list of contributors somewhere, but I can't find it right now. Anyone? I know Robby Workman, Eric Hemeleers, and drmozes (don't remember his actual name), among others, are on that list.

Hi,

Maybe consider shipping bbkeys in a separate package instead?
With this, bbkeys seems to find its kittens back:

From SlackDocs:

Quote:
Eric Hameleers (aka AlienBOB), Robby Workman (aka rworkman), Stuart Winter (aka MoZes), Eric Jan Tromp (aka alphageek), Alan Hicks, Mark Post, Fred Emmott, Vincent Batts, Heinz Wiesinger (aka pprkut) and several more.
I'm not sure if the list is up-to-date.

We debated in 14 pages that off-topic posts must be righteously punished with life-long sentences of banning.

And what are you doing here?
