LOL. I don't think a complete Slackware fork was necessary just to patch slackpkg.

More importantly patches are required for various members of the SW team who no doubt form part of the SW committee.

@linuxbawks: I just realized that you have already started similar threads:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...es-4175622003/
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ed-4175621561/

Both show that you need to enhance your understanding of the "why" and "how" of the Slackware packages management system before proposing a change of it that have any chances of being heard.

Incidentally there isn't such thing as a SW committee as far as I know: there are contributors but Patrick J. Volkerding makes all decisions about what should go in Slackware and what should be changed, including of course the package management system.

Appreciated by Me

Apart from the entertainment value for some and frustration for others, as a non-participant I found value in this thread.

Perhaps 6 or 8 of the posts from long time members did an excellent job of describing some basic concepts regarding Slackware's package management tools. I find such a review helpful in my understanding of Slackware. It reminds me why things are done the way they are in Slackware.

So, while those responding to the topic may end up frustrated/upset, please know that the effort you put into your responses describing Slackware were appreciated by me and perhaps others.

SOLVED. There will be a new SW committee who will be in charge of setting distribution policy on a number of central SW issues. These being Security, the PMS and future distribution releases as well as updates. The committee will also actively be involved in developing and maintaining the PM utilities.

I am on this committee

Don't you have anything better to do than to troll these forums? None of what you posted was of any value to Slackware in any way. It's all useless dribble.
