Yea, maybe I'm maintaining some niche-market scripts. But believe me,
if YOU would like to use it, some one ELSE will use it too. SBo is worldwide
and do have some influence. IMHO, there are enough audience.

If it is true that the only one who use that SlackBuild is youself. Then it
is no harm to upload it to SBo too. I think we can consider it as a backup.
The more distributed, the safer the code is. This is not the purpose of SBo
but I think it can be used like this.

I used rsync to get thing up-to-date. But once the git repo is online,
I switched
to git. It can even show log, diff, branching... you name it ;)
