Hi everyone, just to let you know about this project:

As the title says is a set of tools to help you in your daily use of SBo.

I've been using them without any issue and i think its time that
others can use them so any bug, issue or opinion is welcome.

And BTW, sorry for the lack of documentation but as a quick intro:

As root you can:

1) Synchronize a local repository with SBo's one:

    # sbo_sync
    sbo_sync: rsync:://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/13.37 => /usr/ports/13.37
    receiving incremental file list
    total size is 24.31M  speedup is 58.28
    sbo_sync: done

2) Find a package that you are interesting, let's say cmus:
    # sbo_find cmus

3) Build cmus:
    # sbo_pkg /usr/ports/13.37/audio/cmus
    sbo_pkg: Changing working directory /usr/ports/13.37/audio/cmus
    sbo_pkg: Downloading
    sbo_pkg: Checking MD5 message digest
    cmus-v2.4.3.tar.bz2: OK
    sbo_pkg: Executing cmus.SlackBuild
    Slackware package /tmp/cmus-v2.4.3-i686-1_hba.txz created.

    sbo_pkg: done

4) Install the package, as normal:
    # installpkg /tmp/cmus-v2.4.3-i686-1_hba.txz
