Why should you use SlackOnly?

What package managers support SlackOnly?

There are many package managers for Slackware that can be used to access third party software repositories like SlackOnly.
So far, only a few have been tested with our repositories. These package managers are: slackpkg with slackpkg+, slpkg, and slapt-get.

How can you set up these package managers to use SlackOnly repositories?

Directions can be found in the README.

Why should you trust that SlackOnly provides quality software?

All packages are built and rebuilt using Slackrepo. Slackrepo is a software utility that tests to see that packages are built cleanly
with all required dependencies. Any time a change is made in the source repository, slackrepo will rebuild those changes.
Each rebuild, slackonly will also install each piece of software that was compiled form source. This assures that our
repository provides packages that will install cleanly.

The second part of quality control is done by hand. Packages need to be tested for correct functionality by being installed and used.
It is very important that end-users report any problems they encounters when they install software from our repositories.

The utmost care is taken while generating depenency information for packages in our repository.
Please report all issues to the site administrator as soon as encountered.

How can you develop a package manager for use with SlackOnly?
