I just did a partial clone of Trinity repositories on my Gitorious
account. As of now, the purpose of the repo is to concentrate
Slackware-specific (or rather not-Debian-specific ?) development. I have
uploaded tdebase and tdelibs, but I won't upload all the repositories
because Gitorious' Terms of Service won't let there be more than 500
MB/mo of bandwith without impunity (although I'm not sure there has to
be extensive bandwith beyond my initial uploads; perhaps the big
downloads can all be made from, but still pure
Slackware users/packagers who want to use the repo will just "git
clone" from gitorious).
Are there other repositories where there are especially many Slackware
patches ?
Anyway as of now, I did neither attempt to build the repo on Slackware,
nor put any patch on it, so it is useless. I just wanted to set up the
foundations :)
The URL of the repositories (grouped as a "project" in Gitorious terms)
is .
And I forgot the important part: since I am the admin of these repos I
can grant you (or any other Slackware developer :)) commit rights,
without wrecking havoc in Tim's official repos.
