New xmobar maintainer: request for comments


Hi,

I've recently accepted Andrea Rossato's kind offer to take over
maintainership of xmobar, and i wanted to ask for feedback to the
community. My apologies for cross-posting to the cafe and xmonad, but
xmobar didn't have a mailing list until a couple days ago.

My immediate plans are to fix some low-hanging bugs, incorporate a
handful of patches and contributions i have in my repo and make a new
release (0.12). Besides that, i've created a mailing list
(xmobar@...,
http://projects.haskell.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/xmobar, also
mirrored at gmane.comp.lang.haskell.xmobar) and i will move xmobar's
homepage to http://projects.haskell.org/xmobar (not done yet).

Perhaps more disruptingly, i'm thinking of moving source code management
from darcs to git (right now, i maintain a _mirror_ at github,
http://github.com/jaor/xmobar). But xmobar has a very lively user base
and many contributors, and i wouldn't like to alienate or disturb
anyone: would that move be frown upon by the community?

I also plan to keep hacking and adding (not many) features to xmobar in
the future, and would be delighted to hear from you: please, do not
hesitate to send your feature requests or any other comment directly to
me or to the new list.

Thanks in advance for your feedback, and special thanks to Andrea for
creating xmobar and giving me this great chance of being more than a
mere spectator of the haskell world.

Re: Issue 11 in xmobar: Abnormally high cpu load on X


Comment #26 on issue 11 by klu...@...: Abnormally high cpu load
on X
http://code.google.com/p/xmobar/issues/detail?id=11

I still see this problem, with the following versions:

xmobar: 0.9.2 (Ubuntu)
xmonad: 0.9.1 (Ubuntu)
xorg: 1:7.5+5ubuntu1
linux: 2.6.32-25

If I'm reading this bug report correctly, those are versions for which the  
problem was thought to be solved.  If I'm wrong and just need to update my  
software, that's good, too.

Here's an ltrace of xmobar running under my configuration.  I'm pretty sure  
ltrace caused xmobar to crash after a while, so take it with a grain of  
salt.

Comment #3 on issue 24 by jaortega: swap <usedratio> always displays zero
http://code.google.com/p/xmobar/issues/detail?id=24

The git repo now contains a fix for the off-by-100 issue. Regarding
%, there's a new option, -P, which switches it on/off.

Re: Issue 25 in xmobar: memory <usedratio> doesn't include percent symbol


Comment #5 on issue 25 by jaortega: memory <usedratio> doesn't include  
percent symbol
http://code.google.com/p/xmobar/issues/detail?id=25

I've pushed a patch in the git repo whereby including % is controlled
by a new per-plugin flag, -P, which can be set to either True (the default)
or False.

I could be persuaded to set it to False by default, but using True seemed
the less surprising option for old users.

Re: Issue 26 in xmobar: Add a Run Once for executing external commands


Comment #2 on issue 26 by jaortega: Add a Run Once for executing external  
commands
http://code.google.com/p/xmobar/issues/detail?id=26

I've implemented this feature in the git repo by letting the
refresh rate to be 0 (or a negative value) to denote "run once"
(instead of introducing new syntax). Thus, now one can write

    Run Com "uname" ["-s", "-r"] "" 0

and uname will be run just once.

This is now fixed in the git repo.
