Slackware, Slax Patrick Volkerding, Slackware's maintainer, announced that Slackware 10.2 is going into beta: "I think it's time to consider this to be mostly frozen and concentrate on beta testing in preparation for the Slackware 10.2 release, so there won't be too many more upgrades and additions."

Without a gnome distribution included in slackware, no one can create package of gnome-dependent programs for slackware. Say I want to build and distribute a package of program X, should I build it under freerock gnome, dropline gnome or gware?

Good point, but aren't gtk libs etc. still included in /l? Pat still includes gtk apps like gaim and gftp. Maybe what's included isn't enough, though. I've never built packages like what you are suggesting. Just wondering.

I'm talking about applications like gnucash and evolution. They depend on gnome-libs, bonobo and lots of other libs. Evolution is included in dropline and freerock gnome so that isn't really an issue, but gnucash isn't.

Evolution is one thing but gnucash is quite another. Compiling and building gnucash is a non-trivial matter to say the least seeing as how it is still based on GTK1 and not GTK2. Even if you had a full Gnome installation on Slack, I think you would be in as big of a fight to get gnucash on your system.
