Description Michal Jaegermann 2004-04-10 19:20:35 EDT
Description of problem:

Sawfish, as provided, mishandles fonts descriptors as returned
"pango style" by font selectors.  Attached patch brings sawfish
to the status of the current cvs and this version of that
window manager does not have these problems.

Missing from specs file OPTIONS is also rather crucial in the
current state of things.

Sawfish has been dropped from Fedora Core 3, see
for some more discussion.

Closing all Sawfish bugs for this reason.
