   Slackbuilds.org normally will not accept SlackBuilds for official packages.

   Quote from http://www.slackbuilds.org/guidelines

     "As a general rule, we do not accept SlackBuild scripts of software that is
      included as part of Slackware; however, exceptions may be made by the admin
      staff on a case-by-case basis.

Fair enough but how do you fix bugs (if any) on official packages
? Or even simpler, how do you send patch to bump package version
? Reading through Slackware ChangeLog reveals it can happen
sometimes. I thought SBo was sort of "Slackware Labs".
