It's really quite simple Darrell:
We are a site that hosts SlackBuild scripts, not packages. It is not about
supporting any particular package format. If you want to use the old .tgz
packages, then by all means edit the last line of the script and change
the extension of the package which is going to be created. These scripts
are not set in concrete.
When we start adding scripts for Slackware 13.0 in our repository, you can
expect that they will (or should) support *all* of Slackware 13.0's
features - which includes the new package formats. When we sign off a
script after our internal QA round we will have tested it on a full
install of Slackware.
