Re: Some kind of a roadmap to 1.8 (and beyond)

Thanks a lot, Chris. It must be tedious to make this list.

The pager's bugtracker at nanolx is ok, but I can't register at
tuxfamily's, as fuchur says. (And it requires cookie. it'd better if
it warns.)

"Named tabgroup" change has to be tested too, so I think it's better
to include it, making an rc once and for all. If it's done twice, the
latter is likely to be tested less than the first one.

My todos:
* hot-spot: accept lisp expression, too, in addition to a lisp func.
* Some doc.
* check the status of raisee-on-hover. I think it's better to put it
  in wm/ext/auto-raise together with new "raise-on-enter". 
  (I have not understood the last argument on it yet. Oh, is it
  removed? Discuss it in a seperate thread.)

If my work delays, you may want to implement:
* double exec prevention in jump-or-exec and hot-spot, using "pgrep".
  Even if pgrep is not available in your environment, it won't hurt
  since it's optional.

Yeah, it's important. Tuxfamily's Sawfish page is a dead end. I
remember you said it's auto generated and unconfigurable, but aren't
there something we can do?

This'll be the centeral work in 1.9. Finally!

Never mind, GTK3 delayed, too. Longhorn [deleted by MS censor.]
No, what's important is 99% of softwares are still using gtk2. No
reason to release now.
