Is there some way to search through the SlackBuilds repository and
identify scripts that require an update?
I am interested in taking on a larger load of SlackBuilds as a
maintainer. I am just a bit concerned about how I would go about
keeping track of when the upstream sources are updated so that I can
update the SlackBuild.
I am not worried about whether I do or do not use the SlackBuild. I am
happy to update / maintain such software.
