slpkg : SlackBuild.org package manager


Hi,

Here is a thread about this great package manager for SlackBuild.org repository
I will give some updates of the hard work made by Dimitris (dslackw)
I made the French translation of the manpage, and I try to help him (feedback, debug, etc...) as mush as I can

Features:
- Install, Update, Remove packages and its dependencies
- It automatically calculates dependencies and figures out what things need to happen to install packages.
- It makes it easier to manage groups of machines without the need for manual updates
And among others:
- Dependencies install order
- Colorful messages
- Nice python "clock" progress bar (I don't know how to call this one )
- Check the ChangeLog.txt file before update
- Improve speed for dependees

The last release on SBo is 4.4.8
And the 4.5.0 is awesome!

both
But SBo provides slackbuilds for <= 15.0
Most of the time, at least here, they build & run fine on -current

I'm getting an error about slackbuilds certificate is expired. Is there a way to tell slpkg to ignore this?

It's a Let's encrypt certificate that expires on : Sat, 28 Jan 2023 03:08:41 GMT

Hopefully, it should be automatically renewed soon
