Yep, main development goes there for some time already and it features many fixes and improvements.

Whoops, I meant

Hey there,

Would you consider switching the upstream repo over to Judging from the Github fork tree for qtile (, it seems this repo has the most active development, and forks are merged back into it on a regular basis. I'm going to test it over the weekend and will report in case I find any issues. Installation has worked fine, though.

Thanks for consideration!

@the_isz added pygtk as dependency
@Chris2048 pygobject it's a pygtk dependency

'pygobject' also seems to be a dependency.

Confirming mikezackles finding: qtile won't run without pygtk being installed.

I wasn't able to run this without pygtk. Should it be added to the dependencies?

added config examples in /usr/share

This now depends on cairo-xcb, the same dependency as awesome, which works and passes all unit tests. The main difference is that the git clone is a 100mb download, while the release is just 23mb.
pycairo-git and xpyb-git are still required since there have been important updates recently in these bindings.

Maybe include examples/config/ ?
