If you'd like to visit www.studioware.org we have a mailing list and
IRC channel and would be very glad of any feedback or suggestions
I'm in the middle of repackaging at the moment and putting in the
setcaps options. As soon as this is done we will be looking at
adding more applications. All suggestions welcome.

If you can provide slackbuild scripts that conform closely to the sbo
templates + an info file we would be glad of any contributions.

Studioware is an attempt at joining forces, although we don't have an
automatic submission system at all, but since we are only a small
project at the moment that isn't a problem.
