Since Slackware 14.1 is coming together, could all of you who
plan on preparing and distributing support for Slackware ARM
14.1 for the RaspberryPi please reply to this message (on-list) with the
following information.  I will collate it and put it into the
/INSTALL_RASPBERRYPI.TXT document within the release.

Note that this is *only* for those of you who are supplying
images/installers that contain the _official_ Slackware ARM packages which
will be taken from ftp.arm.slackware.com/slackwarearm/slackwarearm-14.1.

  1. The URL of the web site containing information about your

  2. Installation method: regular installer / pre-supplied image(s)

     If it's a pre-supplied image, what categories of software are

     Don't list every package, but a high level brief description such as:

       dev tools ('d')

         - Compilers and toolchain tools
         - Python, Perl

      X11 ('x')

        - X packages relevant to the Rpi

      KDE ('kde')
       - All of KDE
       - Base components of KDE

  3. RPi boards / versions of boards that your distribution has been
     tested with and confirmed operational.

  4. The particular reason for choosing yours over another.  Some of the
     reasons that some people have created their own image is because Dave
     Spencer's work stopped at 13.37, or theirs addressed particular
     problems on certain boards.

     Please note that this shouldn't be a reason for the 14.1 release -
     you should treat this as new rather than a patch to someone else's work (even
     if that's what it started out as).


I'll stop taking submissions at the release of RC1 of Slackware 14.1 x86.

Any questions - please ask!
