I'll think about all of that.

Bottom line, yes I can wait. Yet I am making such horrific progress getting these packages to build on Slackware. Just a tad frustrated. I'd like at least the benefits of 3.5.11.

I have individually patched 3.5.10 to support xz in Ark, added the process manager to the panel, and updated kdelibs to support inotify requirements. A nice start but I would like to enjoy the other changes too. I wanted to add support to 3.5.10 for resizing the system tray icons, but I don't all of the required patches.

I'll wait another week or so before deciding. If by then we are close to getting svn working in Slackware then my qyestion is moot. But if not, I might consider that side route.

With that said, what is your policy about releases? When do you place a freeze on tinkering and then focus solely on bug fixes to set a release date?
