Description John Florian 2016-04-13 15:34:39 UTC
Description of problem:
I've recently discovered the wonderful vim "autoswap" plugin[0] and to be effective this really needs the wmctrl executable to be available.  I'd like to be able to use the same vim configuration (in my NFS home dir) on both CentOS and Fedora hosts alike.

PING.  Any chance that this can happen?

Comment 2 Harry Mallon 2016-06-30 09:24:11 UTC
Hi John. I also use this package on CentOS7 (we package it internally). I am in the process of trying to become a Fedora packager so that I can add the centOS/RHEL 7 branch to the repo.

Comment 3 Harry Mallon 2016-06-30 09:39:24 UTC
Further to the above, it seems unlikely I will get packager status without some fresh 'new' packages apparently. So consider this a +1.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2016-07-26 02:03:20 UTC
Apologies for taking so long. :-(

I requested a branch for epel7.

Comment 5 Harry Mallon 2016-07-26 15:33:19 UTC
Thanks Jens, I had pretty much given up hope on this.

Thank you Jens!  No worries here about the delay here -- I'm not much better in the timing of showing my gratitude or even getting a chance to try this until now.  :-)
