i announced it on #slackbuilds channel on IRC and he responded there

There are some packages that are still working since the first time
they submitted and may be used by other applications.
Since it doesn't change much, there won't be many download counts on
this package since most people that needs this package will have
installed it long time ago
I don't think we will remove that right? :)

The condition we will remove a package will be:
- - No longer build on newer Slackware release
- - Broken package and no longer maintained upstream
- - Maintainer decided to abandon the package and no one is willing to
take over
