As we discussed earlier today, I have contacted several desktop
environments about their plans that might impact i686. So far, I've
written to MATE, LXDE/LXQt, Xfce, Enlightenment and Lumina, which I
had never heard of before, but I found through dnf. I also discovered
Hawaii that way, but their website had only x86_64 stuff, so I
didn't bother with them.
Great! Thanks for taking care of this so quickly.
Have I forgotten someone?
No, I don't think so. I think those represent the vast majority of our
potential user base. Never heard of Lumina. I'll have to check it out.
I've already heard back from Enlightenment, this is their

Great! Sounds like we'll at least have one WM we can target. Thanks
again for contacting these upstreams.
