Slint public key needs to be refreshed, dae and edbrowse in the Slint repository

Hello,

Slint users, to get the public key replacing the one that expired, please type as root
slapt-get --add-keys
This is needed for slapt-get to continue working.

To stay off-topic, you can get new dae and edbrowse packages:
slapt-get -u
slapt-get -i dae # lower case letters: d a e
slapt-get -i edbrowse #lower case letters e d b r o w s e

Descriptions follow:

Edbrowse is a combination editor, browser, and mail client 100% text based.
The interface is similar to /bin/ed, though there are many more features, such as editing multiple files simultaneously, and rendering html.
This program was originally written for blind users, but many sighted users have taken advantage of the unique scripting capabilities of this program, which can be found nowhere else.
A batch job, or cron job, can access web pages on the internet, submit forms, and send email, with no human intervention whatsoever.
edbrowse can tap into databases through odbc.
Primarily written by Karl Dahlke.
Please note that edbrowse can use the duktape java script engine, shipped as dependency, query and edit SQL databases.
After installation to know a little more:
man edbrowse
Must read first:
/usr/doc/edbrowse-3.7.4/usersguide.html
or in French:
/usr/doc/edbrowse-3.7.4/usersguide_fr.html

DAE (The Digital Audio Editor)
The purpose of this program is to allow for the editing of digital
audio files from a text-based application in a user-friendly manner
The author of DAE is Willem van der Walt.
Documentation is available in /usr/doc/dae-r33982
COPYING
INSTALL
README
audioeditor.txt
dae_tutorial.ogg
duty.wav
user_guide.txt
Theses files come in addition to the man page.
Of course dae-tutorial.ogg is an audio tutorial.
If you want to use dae to edit duty.wav, copy it to a directory in your $HOME so
that DAE can back it up before editing it.
dae works only in a tty (console), not in a terminal in a graphical environment.

Best regards,

Didier
