"Slackbuild" is a build recipe, just like RPM spec file or Arch PKGBUILD.

There is a website called which collects thirdparty slackbuilds (ie build recipes that are not part of official Slackware repository) for others to use. tend to group slackbuilds following Slackware official releases (there is a group of slackbuilds targetted for Slackware 13, Slack 14, Slack 14.1, etc etc).

I'm not speaking on behalf of Weldon but I guess this would be where the musl slackbuild will end up.
