Seriously? Since when is adding a package that is already in the repos with a different configure flag a good idea? We don't even allow this in the AUR...
Seriously. While it's not ideal, it has been done. I would consider it the same as including bin/lib32 packages just to include things like wine or whatever. The [community] repo is intended for this kind of experimentation and freedom.
I think awesomewm has enough of a user base to justify such measures if a TU is willing to maintain it.
While are you at this add firefox/thunderbird cairo system support. It has enough user base and a lot of complains about fonts that are not consistent with system, doesn't matter if firefox/tb is broken.
We can do this </sarcasm>
Sure, why not? This doesn't compare with awesome though, which doesn't exist in the repos, and actually requires cairo-xcb. Firefox is available in the repos and your font issues can likely be worked around. At least I have no problems with fonts there.
I'm starting to get a bit peeved with people confusing [community] and [unsupported] with the [core] and [extra] bits.
