    I understand exactly what you mean, however I just dont find it tedious to check 10 websites every month, or so.

    but really, theres no need to stay uber cutting edge hehe, so what if xchat is 2.6.1 and you have 2.6.0 on?

    I wouldn't worry about it you'll find something has been updated, if you're interested enough in the project!

    you could always use *spit* slapt or something

    Good point, if I'm *that* bothered about having the latest versions I'd check anyway, otherwise, not.

    I'll have to make a list of packages I want (I hate having things on my computer which I don't need).

    Maybe so... however, I don't think Slackware was ever intended to be a rolling release as is the case with Arch, so manual labor and and/or tedious as you put it is the only way I know of tracking it without 3rd party software.

    It could be that Patrick will move to automate Slackware package management in the near future, but somehow I doubt it.

    Sorry I couldn't provide the magic solution that will work for you.
