Of course. Still a lot of discussion but no work :)

The skip-tasklist window-matcher was dropped. Only used by GNOME and
only in ancient versions. (don't mix with tasklist-skip, which is the
way to go and of course still supported)

GNOME-Menu support was dropped, as it was only working correctly for
GNOME 1.x, for 2.x it wasn't usefull actually. In addition it was
supersedded by fdo-menu (and it's loader from gnome-int)

Quit and Restart entries aren't removed anymore from root-menu when
gnome-int is loaded

Removed ancient capplet bit

Add Session/Help -root-menu entries similarily to kde-int

Updated all commands for non-ancient GNOME

Use sawfish-wide browser-program and xterm-program instead of fully
hardcoding those two apps

Removed all other now unneeded stuff from gnome-int

Overall (didn't meassure) code is off by 75%

Is the Wiki doc in HEAD (faq, sawfish, or own file)?

It actually won't, as bug-squashing has high priority that time and I
actually want to see some more squashed, additionally the
widget-transistion in SawfishConfig is not finished, yet.

Even if time is not enough for GtkTree -> GtkTreeView and GtkCList ->
GtkTreeView atleast GtkCombo -> GtkComboBox should be done. The former
two involve work in rep-gtk, too.

That's the GNOME way of doing so ^_^;

0.90.4 will carry it, as this release already has fixes for OpenBSD it
will be released at least together with sawfish 1.6.0
