Should we say "Thank you!" to a SlackBuild maintainer who provides an
upgrade to a shared library so that the 172 packages that rely on it are
now broken?

Yes repology is an useful tool, but blindly upgrade all and every
SlackBuild wouldn't be a good thing IMO.

Have a good day,


PS Yes I know, the user has no obligation to apply an update. But not
all users are aware of the possible consequences of doing that.
