[Slackbuilds-users] Hands off davfs2.SlackBuild for now!

I had taken the previous cue to contact the maintainer and I got this
reponse on the 4th Nov:

"Sorry to have been out of the loop!  I'll be happy to do so.  I am without
slack ATM, but need to get my vm's sorted anyway.  Probably in the next
couple of weeks then."

It appears that no-one had contacted him, and he slacked off...

As it involves someone taking the trouble of re-installing Slack after a
long time, and it is evident that a lot of love was invested in it, I am
keeping my hands of it.

If by end 2009, we are still with no updates, we should reconsider.

If anyone needs this SlackBuild urgently, simply update the $VERSION, and it
works even on Slack64.

Waiting on the maintainer, but enough time has passed at this 
point that I'd say it's fair game for anyone to take over the
maintenance on it, so feel free.
