hey everyone,

okay so as some of you may know, i'm working on the repository at the 
moment. would love for you guys to all take a look at what i have so far 
and help me consider anything i may be doing wrong or leaving out so 
far. any changes you'd like to see, etc. somewhat a broad question, i 
know, but together i am confident we can tackle the issue through 

a few questions i'd like some further input on are...

do we want to ask for the slackware version the SlackBuilds are intended 
to be used on when they are submitting their SlackBuilds on the uplaod form?

elohim can we get me set up with database access/login soon as possible?

do we want a message board on the site?

regarding the repository...

can anyone provide further input as to how they think it should look? 
look at how it is now and inform me of anything that could be done 
differently. do we want to count the number of times a slackbuild has 
been downloaded? do we want to list the date a slackbuild was uploaded? 
(i was thinking i could pull this from the date on the filesystem probably)

should there be links to view each file in an uploaded SlackBuild 
seperately, or just a link to download them all together, as a gzip or 

i'll be busy all day and night saturday with a party here at my house, 
so won't be available too much until Sunday, but the more direction you 
guys give me as to how you think it should be done, the faster I will be 
able to code it when I sit down to do so again.
