Robby, please don't remove pmount from the 12.2 repo.
I find it really useful, as a fluxbox user ; all I had to do to use it on my old laptop is populate /etc/pmount.allow with;
Is that too much for the average Joe ?
A note in the README, e.g.:
For now removable devices are not recognized ; please populate /etc/pmount.allow with a list of your removables devices - see man pmount

I was just saying that if it is removed from the 12.2 repo, people could still get the SlackBuild from the 12.1 repo if they don't mind having to use pmount.allow to list a range of removable devices.
> I think pmount still works perfectly fine (completely) if you use a kernel from Slackware 12.1 (or near equivalent kernel version). It might also work better with a custom kernel with some different sysfs options. None of this is in SW 12.2 so it does not really matter here.
