./wm/wmii, Modular and keyboard-friendly window manager

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 3.9.2, Package name: wmii-3.9.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

wmii (window manager improved 2) is a dynamic window manager for X11.
It supports classic and dynamic window management with extended
keyboard, mouse, and filesystem based remote control. It replaces the
workspace paradigm with a new tagging approach.

Its minimalist philosophy attempts to not exceed 10.000 lines of code
(including all shipped utilities and libraries), to enforce simplicity
and clarity.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.
