Why sbopkg not in slackbuilds?


Just curious why Sbopkg which uses slackbuilds.org repository is not in the repository?

Because you can get a package as well as SlackBuild from http://sbopkg.org/

Maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea if SlackBuilds.org hosted sbopkg's code and corresponding SlackBuild, since Chess Griffin officially quit developing it. The sbopkg.org site will soon disappear, so this is just an idea.

That's a good idea. Many thanks to Chess for his dedicated service, support!

Just be careful guys. If you try to build/install sbopkg using sbopkg, you'll break the internet.

Ryan is willing to keep the domain sbopkg alive, so we will keep using the old domain

sbopkg is already very mature (that's my personal opinion), so i don't add new features for now
My goal is to improve it's performance and robustness

Please send your ideas via github issue if you do have one
