when will it be ready?
I plan on beginning the project about a week and a half after Slackware 10 is officially released, both so Dropline Gnome can catchup and so tiny bugs
in the first release of slackware can be ironed out. As for the exact release date, there will never be a firm date. I will release alphas, betas, RCs and the like
as it seems right to me. When it comes across my path to release a version I shall.
To quote many famous developers: "It will be released when it is ready."
