fixed the package and added the qtile-examples repo to /usr/share/doc/qtile-git/examples/

The example config has been changed to be included in the python package, so it is safe to remove the lines for copying the example config.

Or you can change the cp line to point at its current location libqtile/resources/default_config.py

i updated git repo, make it depends on xorg-xpyb-git, and cairo>=1.12, to install qtile and pycairo-xcb-git we need to install cairo from testing, until it's committed to the stable repo.

quick howto:

edit /etc/pacman.conf and enable testing repo
pacman -Sy cairo
edit /etc/pacman.conf and disable testing repo

yaourt or makepkg --install qtile-git

Update the following line in the PKGBUILD:

_gitroot="git://github.com/qtile/qtile.git"

the PKGBUILD points to an old repo that doesn't seem to be updated anymore.

Yet another update:

The cairo-xcb package has been removed (prematurely) because the new 1.12
version of cairo has been declared as stable and contains the xcb backend. Yet,
it hasn't been committed to the stable repository yet and the respective package
has been flagged as out-of-date.

Now, to successfully build qtile-git, you need to:

- Grab cairo (1.12) from the abs, build and install it
- Rebuild pycairo-xcb-git, changing its dependencies to include cairo instead of
cairo-xcb.
- Do the same for qtile-git (i.e. change its dependencies to include cairo
instead of cairo-xcb and rebuild it).

While we're at it: The package xpyb-git doesn't seem to compile anymore, so we
should probably have qtile-git depend xorg-xpyb-git now.

As soon as cairo 1.12 has been committed to the stable branch and python2-cairo
has been rebuilt, qtile-git can just depend on those two packages instead of
cairo-xcb and pycairo-xcb-git.

Ok, I checked it and the new (stable) cairo package still doesn't build the xcb
backend. Which makes the removal of the cairo-xcb AUR package all the more
problematic... Why has it been removed in the first place, I wonder...

The cairo-xcb package has been removed from the AUR, presumably because of the
new cairo version that is out (and including the xcb backend!?).

Unfortunately, just building qtile-git and pycairo-xcb-git against cairo doesn't
work, so I guess we need a new PKGBUILD :(

the main development should go here https://github.com/qtile/qtile i'm waiting that cortesi lets some other trusted devs make merges on that fork, look at http://groups.google.com/group/qtile-dev/browse_thread/thread/e940cebeba819493
