@sullybiker If he finds a way to collect those donations himself....
@sullybiker true, however it didn't sound all that definitive to me. He's merely considering it.

"Fri Jul 27 21:01:22 UTC 2018

(All the communication channels for this seem slightly obscure.)
@galaxis that's a great place to post this! Every Slackware user reads at least the Changelog.
@notclacke Thanks. I'm aware, and we
