all preparation and no H

Post by Tim CowChip » 23. Oct 2012, 19:28

I have built hsetroot and was thinking of submitting it. The package downloaded by slapt-src fails md5sum. I have always found it to be a handy way to draw a desktop in a window manager and thought it might be nice to have it available in the repos.
This is not a work in progress, it was done in under 3 minutes. Just asking if there are any objections.

Scutaro.. my god the Sox traded him to dump his $6M salary.... :cry: But i digress.
I say go for it and submit the package. Binary packages in the Salix repo are always preferred over building from source with slapt-src

I tried to use this recently and had the same problem. So I'm with laprjns. Go for it. :)
