What about a package like Transmission?
Transmission is not part of Slackware. It is a standard part of Salix though. (That is, it is standard with a full install anyway.)
There is a slackbuild for Transmission at slackbuilds.org though.
So what is your policy on packages like Transmission? That is, what is your policy on providing updates for packages in the stable releases of Salix for packages that are standard on Salix (full install) but that are not standard packages on Slackware?
I mention this because there are frequent updates for Transmission. The latest stable version is 2.01.
