I ran into complications when I first started to work on awesome-wm,
then someone else packaged the older version of awesome-wm which just
worked. I will search my patch, rebase, comment it, send to the
guix-devel list (address@hidden) and you can bring it to a working
state if you like to? Additional help you can get from other
contributors if this is your first patch.
