I confirm that Slackware is still alive and using the early access to 
the KDE source tarballs.
You can use the following contacts:
Patrick Volkerding <volkerdi at slackware.com>
Eric Hameleers <alien at slackware.com>

Note that as far as I know, Bluewhite64 and Slamd64 (two Slackware 
64bit spinoffs from before Slackware had its own 64bit edition) are 
dead for years now. And Tukaani is no longer a (slackware based) 
distro but now only develops XZ compression tools.

Cheers, Eric
