Description: Extremely fast, small, dynamic and awesome tiling window manager

awesome is a tiling window manager initialy based on a dwm code
rewriting. It's extremely fast, small, dynamic and awesome.

Windows can be managed in several layouts: tiled, maximized and
floating. Each layout can be applied on the fly, optimizing the
environment for the application in use and the task performed.

Managing windows in tiled mode assures that no space will be wasted on
your screen. No gaps, no overlap.

awesome 2.1 will probably be released before this review request has been
approved. awesome 2.1 depends on libconfuse >= 2.6 which is not in Fedora yet.

Comment 2 Hans Ulrich Niedermann 2008-01-21 17:21:39 UTC
awesome 2.1 has been released.

Updated packages, requiring not-yet-released libconfuse 2.6

awesome 2.2 and 2.3 have been released, but I have not made any packages of those.

(At least for the time being,) I have given up using awesome in favour of
standard Gnome with awesome-like keybindings: There seems to be no other way to
use NetworkManager, the setroubleshoot browser, etc.

If anyone wants to take over this package, feel free to do so.
