With a new year just around the corner I thought now would be a good time to show people how they can help out the Slackware community.
With the release of Slackware 11 some of Slack’s documentation has become obsolete. You can help by keeping this documentation up to date or by writing new documentation. Slackwiki and The Slackware Handbook are great places to store whatever knowledge of Slackware you have acquired over the years.
If you don’t like to write, making packages and SlackBuild scripts are other great ways to help. If you need a place to store your packages and SlackBuilds, Linuxpackages.net and SlackBuilds.org are dedicated to providing a repository for Slackware packages and SlackBuild files. Linuxpackages also has great resources to help new package makers.
If you have the bandwidth to spare and would like to take some of the load off of some servers, setting up a mirror is also really helpful.
This New Year’s make a resolution to give back to the Slackware community… and keep it! 😉
If you know of other ways to help leave a comment a let the rest of us know.
