I am a long time user of sawfish, because it can mimics the layout of windows buttons of OS X. I am a long time user of Debian and package maintainer for some years. I am not a Debian Developer, but I have a sponsor. Someone that reviews my work and upload it to Debian. The sawfish version in Debian is old but still very usable. That's a good sign about the quality of the code. > > Christopher: can't your packages be submitted to the official Debian > > repos? > > > I would have to read more into the debian packaging stuff, build > packages for god knows what architectures.

I have prepared new packages for librep, rep-gtk and sawfish. Currently I am waiting for my sponsor to review the work and upload it to experimental. If there is interest I can upload somewhere else the packages so you can do a preview of what will be included in Debian. > > > Best wishes. > > Mario > > > Regards, > Chris > Kind regards Jose M Calhariz -- -- -------> Não corte aqui, ou vai destruir seu monitor.
