Re: [Sawfish] Some issues is Sawfish

I also am grateful for all the hard work on sawfish. I regret that we may lose a maintainer, but that is not as huge a problem as many might think.

Just to be clear about this:

- No open-source project is truly dead, just that there may be long periods when there is no maintainer. Someone can come along at a later date and pick up a project that is unmaintained. The fact that Mr. Bratusek may be winding down does not mean that someone else might step in at some point.

- Even if it becomes unmaintained, that precludes FUTURE bug fixes and FUTURE enhancements. The software is in great shape today and will not suddenly 'break' in a few  months time (barring major changes in the underlying architecture). I personally am not aware of any bugs which prevent me using it as I want to and when I try to do something and fail it always turns out to be my lack of knowledge rather than a shortcoming which would need enhancement.

Subject: [Sawfish] Some issues is Sawfish

Hi guys,

I'm very sad that there are rumors that project is dead. But I found in it a lot of things which is needed to me and BIG THANKS for it to authors of Sawfish.

So about the issues:

1. Cannot move, close or something else do with window if keyboard locale is not English.
2. Cannot find any suggestion how to set opacity for matching window. Windows-alpha or Native-focus-transparency is good but it's set transparent for all windows (focus or unfocus)

I'm only need to set transparent for specific window another window should have default behavior.
3. I canot find how I can in my ~/.sawfishrc define some properties for specific window match.
I use now the gui to add WindowRule but some of cases I need to specify it in .sawfishrc to have more logic except only chnaging the properties of window.

4. How I can add hook to change workspace and e.g show notify using libnotify or exec notify-send?

5. How I can get access to post bugs on Flyspray?
