Hi Anand!

No it isn't. If you want to use Slackbuilds/buildscripts, you are free to do so.

Hi,

So it means that we can use SlackBuilds for packages submitted for inclusion in Salix? Do SlackBuilds need to be named build-<package_name>.sh? I tested slkbuild and that makes it dead easy to create build scripts, but I'd like to be able to maintain packages on slackbuilds.org as well.

It opens another question: can you / will you use existing SlackBuilds to add new packages to Salix repository?

Of course you can use Slackbuilds and, no there is no rule for build-$name.sh naming. You can use $name.Slackbuild naming as with all slackware packages.

But I'd appreciate it to have the SlackBuild included in the package in /usr/src/$packagename-$version

Yes. I feel using SLKBUILD makes package creation process more systematic.
