I like the idea because sometime after/in Linux kernel v2, documentation 
on how to build a kernel disappeared from the main site or from The 
Linux Documentation Project (TLDP) and/or was outdated.  For a while 
there was no documentation or only informal/partial documentation, not 
always very good.  Sometime by v4 there was documentation elsewhere but 
I don't know that it's official... I don't recall if there is any 
official documentation anymore or if it's back in TLDP, so I'd just like 
to see how it's done again.  In the days of v2 I build kernels maybe 
200+ times trying to get a Matrox display/video card to work with dual 
monitors (as separate terminals) to no avail. I'd just like to see how 
it's done again and if we can be assured the SlackBuild does it right, 
that'd be something nice to see...
