in case it goes through.

Hello, thank you for letting me know. I moved from Slackware some time ago, 
hopefully when Slackware 15 is released I will return! Anyway, if you want to 
maintain that slackbuild, by all means go ahead. I appreciate it :)
Thank you.

EMAIL="ricardo.barberis at gmail.com"
