I can understand your feeling about LQ and its moderators.

Meanwhile I am sad to see you leave the Slackware community, as I think that you provided useful contributions (as a4z, for those who don't know).

I have still to look at sbbdep but will certainly do that. Which doesn't mean that I be ready to take it over though ;)

If you want to contribute to Slint, just drop me a line.

Best regards,
