[STUMP] [PATCH] Add a logout command


Attached is a patch that adda a logout command, bound to C-t C-L. The
logout command is a variation on (quit) that prompts the user if they
want to leave or not. This is useful functionality for any window
manager (or at least I think so), and I hope that you find this
useful.

Thank you,

Krzysztof Drewniak

P.S. Sorry about the spamming the list with patches. It's just that I
found some stuff to improve and did so.

[STUMP] stumpwm "crashing" X server

I have talked about this in the IRC channel a few times but so far I
had not been able to solve this.
What happens is the following:

     I start my X session using startx.  I have got stumpwm from the
git repository and built it with clisp.
     At times it will be a few hours, at other times it is pretty much
with a few minutes, but opening/closing
     some dialog boxes will almost certainly crash everything.  When I
say "crash" what happens is that the entire window
     manager crashes, taking down the X session and X server with it,
putting me back at the console prompt.
     There is a backtrace/dump that I can see on the console, but so
far had not been able to
      capture it because you can't scroll back on the console (well
not that far back).

I used VNC today and ran stumpwm under there.  I was able to duplicate
what happens _and_ able
to capture all the output of the backtrace.  I have included the
backtrace below.  If anyone has any thoughts
and/or suggestions, please let me know.  Any help would be
appreciated, and if I can narrow down the issue
let me know.  Applications that I have used which cause this crash to
occur are DBVisualiser (a Java app), Pidgin,
TOra,  PCManFm/Thunar (one or the other or both, can't remember at this point).

----------  BEGIN ERROR REPORT ----------
*** glibc detected *** stumpwm: munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0xb703f1ac ***
======= Backtrace: =========

[STUMP] [PATCH] Add command-line options support (also a request for commit access)

This patch adds and documents support for command-line options. This in
preparation for a --replace option (which I have not implemented). Right
now, there are three options --replace, --help and --version . --help
and --version do what you would expect. Also, the info documentation has
been updated with the new option as well as the docs for my logout
patch.

I would also like to use this email as an opportunity to request commit
access. I have contributed several bugfixes, one minor feature and one
(sort of) major feature. These have yet to make it into the repository
and commit access would be helpful in resolving this backlog, as well as
enabling me to make my contributions to stumpwm more easily.

Thank you for your consideration,

Krzysztof Drewniak

Do you have a savannah username?

I have no problem with more people having commit access but I'm
practically irrelevant at this point. So, I'll defer to the active
maintainers.

My username on Savannah is krzysz00, which I used to send a formal
request for membership in the project a few hours ago. 

[The following paragraph is not intended to offend any current
maintainers]

This list is oddly silent. YOu send in a patch, and you never find out
if anyone has even *seen* the thing, let alone their opinions of it
and wether it will ever be committed. I can understand that people
have a life, and probably won't reply to anything right away. However,
I sent a trivial bugfix a week ago, and I still don't have word on
whether the fix will make it in, which is supprisong, given that
someone (Shawn) evidently reads the list. Now, there might be some
external factor that's causing this patch backlog that I don't know
about, in whih case I take all of this back, but if there isn't, then
maybe, just maybe, this project needs more active maintainers.

You are quite right, the project does need more active maintainers.
That said, you yourself surfaced on the mailing list just a week ago,
which is not a long time by any project's standards.

The hard part of being a maintainer is something you (or anybody else
for that matter) can already participate in - reviewing and commenting
on patches on the ML.  This alone would make life easier for the
existing maintainers and make the list less silent.  You could also
publish your patches in your own public git repo.

So my take on this is not to give you commit access right now, but
maybe later when you've been active for a while.  Happy to hear
opinions from others of course.

I have had a look at your patches and will reply separately to those
emails because this one is already too long.  If you want to talk
