If we want Slackware devs, does it not make sense that we (some of us representing VL) should be hanging out where Slackware enthusiasts work and play. VectorLinux needs an inviting presence on Slackware-related sites. That would include Zenwalk, SLAX, Absolute, Ultimate, NimbleX, AliXe, and Wolvix as well. Some of those endeavors strike me as self-educational, and candidate for absorption into a larger organization. Wolvix, for instance: What does Wolvix do that VL doesnt do? It seems redundant to me.

From there, cultivate a pool of Slackware devs on call/for hire. When communities and leaders see the similarities of the various Slackware distros, the strength of our collective eforts, they may be more inclined to unite in a common cause.
