Slackware, Slax On a recent IRC discussion Pat discussed Slackware's future and the restructuring that will happen for Slackware 11. Regarding the removal of Gnome from Slackware, he said: "GNOME is not easy to build into packages, lacks decent documentation to build, and requires many undocumented system changes for things to work 100%".

I think is better for GNOME in Slackware to let Dropline team handle it, Mr. Pat has to much work with the Linux Kernel packages itself and KDE at the same time, so having DropLine to take care only of GNOME mean that will have more atention to the details in GNOME and GNOME users in Slackware will be more pleased.
