/tvtwm, Classic twm with virtual desktop support
11nb3, Package name:
tvtwm-11nb3, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
tvtwm is a superset of the X11R5 release of twm (Tom's Window Manager),
written by Tom LaStrange. Much of the early functionality, which is
described in more detail in README.old, was added by Tom LaStrange himself.
Since then, tvtwm has fallen under my control, and I've added some things
Why doesn't tvtwm have version numbers, and only has patchlevels? I
don't know. History, I suppose. But, for information's sake, that is
effectually the version number. In this case, pl11.
The major benefit of tvtwm over twm is the "Virtual Desktop". This
allows you do define a substitute root window that is larger than your
display area. This new virtual root window is the parent for all of your
X clients. tvtwm provides a "Panner" which will let you see a scaled down
representation of the whole virtual desktop. Using this panner, and keys
bound to functions added to tvtwm, you can move around this desktop to
have your physical display showing only part of the whole desktop. Thus,
you can have sections of your desktop assigned to particular tasks, or
just use it to keep from having 20 million layers of windows. :-)
Many other things are discussed in README.old. Please look there for
further information. The more recent changes have been documented on an
item-by-item basis, and these changes can be found, not surprisingly, in
the CHANGES file.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for wm category
Problems found with existing distfiles:
Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden). All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Remove xextproto/buildlink3.mk in most cases where it occurs with
libXext/buildlink3.mk, now that it is included there.
Leave the places where its API version is set or variables from it
are used directly (about 3 packages).

- fine grained X11 dependencies for packages which have either USE_IMAKE
or USE_X11BASE set, but don't include mk/x11.buildlink3.mk directly or
- introduce BUILDLINK_PREFIX.libXpm as alias for BUILDLINK_PREFIX.xpm
in the !modular case
- fix some cases where the check for libX11 couldn't work at all by using
C++ for compilation without including the proper headers
Verified using a full X11_TYPE=xorg bulk build without additional
breakage. Discussed with salo@, wiz@ and send to packages@ for feedback.

Mechanically replace all includes of buildlink3.mk of the following
packages with the modular Xorg equivalent. Those are falling back
to the old location by default, so this commmit doesn't change
graphics/xpm ==> x11/libXpm
fonts/Xft2 ==> x11/libXft
x11/Xfixes ==> x11/libXfixes
x11/xcursor ==> x11/libXcursor
x11/Xrender ==> x11/libXrender
x11/Xrandr ==> libXrandr
