Subject: O: openbox -- standards compliant, fast, light-weight, extensible window manager
Date: Mon, 07 Jan 2013 14:01:59 +0100
Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I intend to orphan the openbox package.

The package description is:
 Openbox works with your applications, and makes your desktop easier to manage.
 This is because the approach to its development was the opposite of what seems
 to be the general case for window managers.  Openbox was written first to
 comply with standards and to work properly.  Only when that was in place did
 the team turn to the visual interface.
 Openbox is fully functional as a stand-alone working environment, or can be
 used as a drop-in replacement for the default window manager in the GNOME or
 KDE desktop environments.
 Openbox 3 is a completely new breed of window manager.  It is not based upon
 any existing code base, although the visual appearance has been based upon
 that of Blackbox.  Openbox 2 was based on the Blackbox 0.65.0 codebase.
 Some of the things to look for in Openbox are:
  * ICCCM and EWMH compliance!
  * Very fast
  * Chainable key bindings
  * Customizable mouse actions
  * Window resistance
  * Multi-head Xinerama support!
  * Pipe menus

I repeatedly asked for help (RFH) with little to no effect. Also Daniel Baumann
raised interest to take over the package before I orphan it, but never stepped up
and did so.

Someone please give this package some love, I do no longer feel responsible for 
it and I also do not use openbox anymore.
