Fernando, I do not appreciate the manipulation that you just tried to
pull off. For your last reply, quoted above, you removed
slackbuilds-users from the recipients list and replaced it with the
devil mailing list. Do not do that.

I have made a very, very carefully considered decision to keep the
links to the old homepage and to the Sourceforge downloads, and I have
already told you why. If you do not like that, I can suggest several

1. You can take over ownership of DevIL. Yes, this is a serious
suggestion. Just ask.

2. You can submit a ResIL SlackBuild to replace DevIL. If you do, I
will be happy to orphan and retire the DevIL SlackBuild.

3. You can accept my decision.

Think about those.
