[Slackbuilds-users] Being upstream and maintainer

Hi everyone,

Recently I have switched to Awesome WM. I was looking for a tool to create an 
application menu and came across awemenugen. However, I found it didn't work 
so well (doesn't support icons, doesn't ignore .desktop files with 
NoDisplay=true, creates empty categories, not to mention that you need jdk to 
run it), so I wrote a similar tool in python addressing these issues:


I have a SlackBuild ready to go, but I wanted to ask if it's okay to be both 
"upstream" and maintainer. I can guess that there are some reasons this would 
be encouraged, but I don't want to give the appearance I am using SBo to push 
my own stuff.
