Re: [Sawfish] Lack of time

yeah, lisp is not the most intuitive-looking language of all, there's a lot of 
documentation in the wild web. Explicit documentation like 'look for xyz' is 
not available as such, but the filenames for high level functions are usually 
very intuitive.

In your example it's not so simple, as we use a different term in the 
configurator than in code: lisp/sawfish/wm/ext/match-window.jl 
lisp/sawfish/wm/edge/ for EdgeActions.

You can find docs for librep/sawfish in the respective man/ directory in the 
tarballs, else you are welcome to ask here on the list.
