Hi All,

Some time ago I wrote the maintainer of the maxima SlackBuild about the 
fact that the source code for the version for which the script was 
written, 5.18.1, was no longer available from the project site. I didn't 
hear back from him.

So I decided today I'd try to simply update the maintainer's script to use 
the latest version of the program (5.23.2) & after a few tweaks it seems 
to work fine.

I'm wondering what the best practice is in this case -- should I try 
writing the maintainer again? Should I submit the new script, etc (it 
really isn't mine -- I just modified it)? I'm happy to maintain the build 
if he is no longer interested in doing so.
