Well thing is like this: most GNOME hacker have been busy coding GNOME
applications and so have had little time to learn more about Window
Manager internals. I would personally appreciate if the window
manager hackers joined us so that we could discuss what gnome needs
and what is the best way to make gnome and the window managers
The ICEWM author happens to be on this list and happens to contribute
to this discussion, that is the reason we have got very entusiastic
At some point I tried mailing the WindowMaker list but my message
bounced, I had to be a subscriber to post, so I forwarded my mail to a
friend of mine which was relaying it to the WindowMaker people. I
have not heard from them since then.
