6. I've got another one - it would nice if it was officially allowed
to contribute by sending a PATCH directly to the mailing list instead
of using the submission form.  As many (most?) of use git to track
slackbuilds.org it would just be enough to use `git-send-email' or
`mutt -H' and be done with it.  It would be much faster and easier.  I
remember we were sending PATCHES once when Slackware 14.2 was about to
be released or soon afterwards, I also sent one.  Anyway, I use
sbosubmit written by Andrzej Telszewski but sending patches directly
would be even better.
