Been working on this for a couple of weeks, it's now to the point where
it's ready to be announced to the world, so here we go:

There's a huge public archive of the sources linked to by SBo .info files:


Something like 97.5% of all the source tarballs are there, and once a
week the archive will get updated from the latest SBo git, so new stuff
will get archived as it's added.

Any time you're unable to download the source for a SlackBuild, you
can check http://slackware.org.uk/sbosrcarch/<category><packagename>/
for it, or run a script that'll do it for you.

More details: http://slackware.org.uk/sbosrcarch/README

If you're interesting in mirroring the archive, you can either rsync
it from rsync://rsync.slackware.org.uk/ or create your own using the
sbosrcarch script from git://urchlay.naptime.net/sbostuff.git
