Tais M. Hansen <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: Slackware Source Repository
System name: ssr
Type: non-GNU

The purpose of this project is to ease various source package building for 
Slackware Linux users. Today, users of Slackware are dependant on official 
Slackware package releases, on the pre-built binaries on Linux Packages which 
potentially could have been compromised in some way, or on their own skills at 
configuring and building packages manually.

The project is basically a collection of makefiles crafted to help build and 
install various packages on Slackware Linux systems, much like the Ports system 
for BSD. It will automatically download sources, verify, extract, patch, 
configure, build, package and install/uninstall/upgrade. It will also check and 
follow package dependencies.

Currently basic fetch, build and package functionality is working. About 15 
source packages can now be downloaded from their respective mirrors and built 
by issuing a simple make in the package repository directory. I.e. \"cd 
ssr/repository/development/pwlib && make\", will fetch the pwlib source tar 
ball, checksum, extract, configure, build and prepare for packaging. The binary 
packages are made with Slackware\'s own packagetools, making it a perfect 
companion for any Slackware Linux system.

Basic makefiles and makefiles for the existing 15 sources are available via 
email if needed (16kb).
