I've joined the list at Dan's suggestion, as I will be maintaining
waypipe now, and admittedly it could be useful for sway users, so why
Looking at the SIG page there is a wishlist item for "redshift with
wayland support", and as a big user myself I would be all for it.
The problem is that upstream has not been very active for a while -
merged one PR in 2019, but that aside pretty much nothing since 2018.
Frankly major DEs (gnome, KDE) incorporate the feature natively so users
of redshift on wayland will basically only ever be wlroots-based
compositors, so we shouldn't expect to get much help from anywhere on
this... I imagine the dev uses gnome as he wrote the gnome-clock
location helper redshift-gtk service files, so he's made the switch and
hasn't looked back much.
The wayland support issue suggests arch uses minus7's wayland
branch but that would appear to still be AUR and they are in the same
situation as us (some coprs have it alongside older versions of sway but
I would suggest the way forward would be to try to discuss with jonls
and minus7 if an official fork could start somewhere; either minus7 tree
if he is willing to do it or I suppose I could (I also have vested
interest, I am also using the stdin remote control patches discussed on
this issue, so "just" wayland wouldn't be enough for me, and whoever
takes over would need to be willing to deal with at least accepting PRs
So, what do you folks think? Worth a shot?
We originally introduced the sway module to have an up-to-date version
of sway even in older releases. This is no longer necessary, as all
stable releases have a reasonable new version of sway.
In my opinion, we can just get rid of the module, especially given that
modularized packages are still uncommon in Fedora. Do you still have a
use for the module?
I've just orphaned rofi , as I don't use it anymore and use wofi instead.
The package is in a good shape, Dan (CCed) has already taken care of it
in the past.
Dan, please take the package if you want! If not, everyone else feel
free to take it!
I would like to join the Sway SIG if possible.
My name is Stefano and my FAS is "returntrip", I am a Fedora Silverblue user and I have been using Fedora on and off since around 2005.
I have recently packaged Alacritty (the Fedora 32 package is already in the repos while the F33 package is currently in bodhi). I have also provided a couple of PRs to Sway related projects here and there.
I will not hide that I am quite green when it comes to packaging but I hope to contribute as best as I can.
If you are interested, I have just created a Matrix "Fedora Sway" room, maybe we can chat there.
