it's not that finding a limited number of not maintained SlackBuilds
means that all of 7000 of them are unmaintained: just calculate the

IMHO is only maintaining stuff yourself that helps in these cases.

I think you got this completely wrong: if you don't read the READMEs
and the scripts you run, it's just your fault and you shouldn't blame
nobody else.
