According the the slackware philosphy, I'm not sure that this package will go the repository...

Have you read what the software do ?
Some kind of magic to delete some files on the disk juged useless. Seems like Ubuntu/Windows way of doing things.
It's up to the user to know what to delete on a system, don't you think ?

As long as it only deletes files in your home folder I think it's not a problem.

I saw the link, thank you, but I am not capable, yet, to handle that.

It lets you exactly select which delete filters/rules to use. Then one runs a test run first, which outputs all the files which would be deleted. If any unwanted files are in there, unfortunately, one can't just remove them from the list and apply. Instead you have to unselect the rule which detected that file and rerun it.
I tried it and my system is still stable. :mrgreen:
It deletes stuff from your /home directory and /tmp, that's it as far as I can remember. I also saw no files in there, which would have been a problem, although I didn't run it with all rules and had to switch the backup files filter off, because it would have deleted some of my valuable .bak files. :?
