> Rich's recent question (from which I learned much) made me think that
> maybe there ought to be a "Slackware" category in the SBo repo.
> A "Slackware" category would contain applications that are useful only in
> Slackware. That is to say: there are applications that are useful across
> Linux, and then there are tools that are designed exclusively for Slackware
> (usually package management, often based on either Slackpkg or SBo). Tools
> that are useful in BOTH Linux and Slackware would *not* appear in this
> category.
> Here are some examples. See how many of them you knew existed, and how
> many you know about but think more people might need help finding:
> * sbopkg
> * sboui
> * sbbdep
> * slackpkg+
> * sport
> * sbotools
> * [insert your favourite obscure Slackware/SBo script or app here]
> It seems to me like hiding great Slackware-specific sys utils harms
> discoverability, and mixing them into other, broader categories serves no
> purpose anyway. Sure, sboui might be a System tool, but let's face it: it's
> a Slackware "addon" that nobody knows to look for, and it's not just a
> system tool, it's a Slackware tool. Why not create a category we can all go
> to when we have questions like Rich's, and see what cool script or
> application one of our colleagues has written to scratch the itch?
> Can anyone think of a reason this would be harmful, or not helpful?
