slackpkg updates - nothing for 4 days


Just wondering - have there been any updates lately. I haven't had any updates for about 4 days. Is it just me? Is there a way to check why this might be?

I've never gone this long without an update.

Thanks in advance.

SOMETIMES , we have 1 week ,without updates , normally when a big change , or a massive rebuild arrives.

I think , too new packages this days and some broken things need patch (alsa packages) , and i read in the request something arround upgrade networkmanager need updated dhcpd , and this changes need some days to test

The more strange for me is a new kernel released , and not provided in same day or next day as usual , but nothing wrong.

Wait like a christmas presents ,ha ha ha.

We are now 25 days shy of the five-year anniversary of the release of Slackware 14.2, so I bet pat's making a big push to get 15.0 out the door by the end of this month. Three cheers for pat and all he's doing! It's amazing how he's continuously supported us and Slackware since... when? April 1993? That's over 28 years! Four days of no published updates is barely the blink of an eye on that timescale.

Wow! Just looked at the change.log (should have gone there first). Nothing since June 1 if I'm reading things correctly.

It could be that Pat is cooking something that's taking some time to prepare or maybe Pat is off in the woods camping with his family. We'll just need to patiently wait for updates and see what happens.

I'm guessing either vacation, or a big rebuild coming. Maybe both? There's also a heat wave in his neck of the woods, so big builds are probably best avoided.

Man, you guys are really demanding!

What did you expected from him? To put on ChangeLog "Shop closed for 2 weeks. I'm going at fishing!" ?

gcc 11.1.0 did just come out last month, that could have something to do with it...

Shortly after it came out, I successfully built gcc 11.1.0, targeted to Linux and Windows, using Slackware64-14.2 as the base build environment. It went fairly smoothly. The biggest problem I had was I needed to patch mingw-w64 8.0.0 to deal with a change in some gcc header file. I could get my notes on this if anyone cares.

But no, I don't think this explains the current quiet period. I would have expected gcc 11.1.0 to show up in testing long before pat uses it to recompile the world.

I say let pat take his time and live his life however he sees fit.
