For _NET_WM_PERFORM_BUTTON_ACTION, should these be used for left-clicking to start moving and resizing? We would have to specify the different corner regions, so no, I don't think so. You should probably mention that this is for clicking on the titlebar only (maybe even change the name to PERFORM_TITLEBAR_ACTION perhaps?).

_NET_WM_WINDOW_MENU looks fine to me, but maybe add a timestamp field for good measure? You can never go wrong with an extra timestamp field.

Hi all,

attached are two patches for the NETWM spec. One message is to show the window
manager's window menu, the other is for passing the responsibility to perform
a button action from the client to the window manager. For detailed
information please have a look on the attached patches.

The need for these two client messages were derived by GTK+ and KWin
developers for better integrating GTK's new client-side-decorated windows in
environments which are not GNOME Shell.

KWin will add support for those two new hints and it looks like GTK+ and
Mutter will also support them.

I would like to hear your feedback on them for inclusion into the NETWM spec.
