The SlackBuilds.org admin team would like to welcome Chess Griffin 
and Heinz Wiesinger as our newest members. They have both been 
outstanding contributers. We look forward to working with them.
Now the not so fun stuff,
In trying to resolve some conflicts with Slackware's perl package,
we realized that many of the perl modules were included in Slackwares
perl package and have been removed for that reason. The only thing 
these modules clobbered were the man pages, the modules themselves 
were installed to a different location and did not overwrite the 
Slackware version. We recommend you remove any of these modules you 
may have installed.
