Yes, I remember your patches. I now used these and the other patches I
got and came up with a set of updates that I would be willing to commit
if we can address the following:
- The three most essential packages (to me: blackbox, bbpager, bbkeys)
will conflict with (at least) the three earlier versions of the packages.
We need to make a decision whether or not we actually say `screw all
the people using an old version' and simply update/replace the packages,
or if we want to create separate versions for these. I'm obviously
leaning towards the latter, even though that's messy, too.
All packages then need to get the appropriate MESSAGE indicating how
they are not working with other versions, and ideally how to
update/change the configuration files (at least for bbkeys the
configuration file syntax changed rather intrusively).
Aside from that, the following would be nice to be resolved, too:
- Somebody tell me how I can get the new version of bbpager to _not_
stay raised above all windows. Apparently setting=20
bbpager.raised: False =20
does _not_ do the magic.
- somebody should create a package 'blackbox-styles' that provides the
old style files (possibly plus others) that work just dandy with the
new blackbox, but that are missing from the distfile
