I don't have access to make announcements from "VectorLinux > General Announcements > VL package news and Updates", so here will have to do.
Packages for vl70 were piling up while toothandnail is away and I want to thank the packages for their patience in seeing their hard work find a home in gslapt.
Budulay, hata_ph, kc1di, nickdm, and myself have all contributed packages so far, and of course anyone and everyone is welcome to join.Also, a special shout out to hata_ph with over 150 packages contributed.!!!!
The good news is that I now have access to upload any contributions that you may have for vl's repositories and if you check gslapt I think you will find everything is caught up now and your contributions are ready for the community to test.
Please use this link to see the full list of packages, who made them, whether they are uploaded yet, and whether they have been tested....https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?hl=en&hl=en&key=tcuw02DuXr7regZ5bEBmi9A&authkey=CJOHnPQN&pli=1#gid=16
Anyone who wishes to become a tester can pm me and I can give you access to edit the document. Testing can be as simple as verifying that the application starts, has an icon in the menu, and doesn't produce and error message, when started from inside the terminal.
Also, anyone who may have been holding back on packaging because they saw the packages where not moving out of contrib, need not worry. I've enough free time to stay on top of whatever you throw at me, so bring it on.
I also want to say that after spending just a short amount of time in toothandnails shoes, he did an excellent job with a very laborious task. I'll hold down the fort temporarily but will gladly step aside when he returns.
