@Airblader: Will do so, feel free to take over the packages (though I don't see the need to update git packages…)

Airblader commented on 2017-01-23 07:46

@badboy Would you consider orphaning the packages i3-git, i3status-git and i3lock-git? I'd like to update the versions for releases and important bug fixes or features so that we can push the update to users more actively and thus hopefully get quicker feedback.

@Alad: There's a comment from just 21 hours ago from one of the main developers. I pretty much call that progress.

Alad commented on 2016-12-02 14:32

Well, it's reported but there's no progress yet. Anyway, I guess this only matters for release packages which this is not, so fair enough.

@Alad: please report those things upstream. I'm not involved in i3 development.
You can always use the PKGBUILD to use another commit if you build it manually.

Alad commented on 2016-12-02 14:12

Would you mind temporarily reverting this commit:

It causes i3 to crash on restart whenever marks are used. See:

Going by the original PR this feature isn't used yet, and I'm seeing no side-effects from reverting the commit - apart from that marks don't cause crashes anymore. See:

@Airblader: thanks, I added it now.

Airblader commented on 2016-11-06 00:08

@badboy Those things are disabled for release builds, but git builds are non-release builds to the build environment and thus sanitizers are enabled.

badboy commented on 2016-11-03 12:04

Why do the defaults contain a crashing/performance-reducing option?

Airblader commented on 2016-11-03 08:47

@badboy You might also want to add --disable-sanitizers to the configure step, otherwise there's pretty aggressive sanitizing which impacts performance and can provoke crashes. I forgot that initially for i3-gaps-next-git, but it's there now.
