> Let me suggest something. The Slackbuilds home page contains some text
> with appropriate disclaimers. I would propose to add the following to
> this page, in a big font, so nobody will miss it:
> "The Slackbuilds team makes no guarantees about the quality of the
> packages. We hope that you will be able to download and build the
> relevant software, but we cannot guarantee it. We also hope that the
> software will run properly, but we can also not guarantee it. First,
> there may be problems with the upstream feed, over which we have we no
> control whatsoever. Second, since their contribution is totally
> voluntary and unpaid, we can also not guarantee that package maintainers
> are, in fact, maintaining their packages. In this sense, we can't be
> held responsible for the potential lack of maintenance of packages, and
> any subsequent inconveniences that this may cause."
> I believe that this accurately describes what one can expect from
> Slackbuilds. There is no point in concealing it, if  nothing can
> reasonably be done to change the status quo. Slackbuilds will remain
> tremendously useful, but this will make it clear to newcomers what its
> limitations are.  Reality is the way it is, and not the way we would
> like it to be. Is this not a fair deal?

I think the LICENSE covered that part
