One of our policies here is to not host anything that is provided as
part of official Slackware packages.  There are/can be some exceptions
to this - for example, we have a script for apache2 in /pending right
now, and that's a candidate for inclusion simply because of the sheer
difference in codebase - it's not merely a "shiny new version number."

It seems as if we're approaching the point where most of the commonly
requested applications are in our repository, but there's always some
other things we could use.  As you run across things that you need, we
would certainly appreciate contributions...  :)
