Again, I find myself in the position where my preferred 'environment' is eroding. The only force keeping icewm rolling these days are the distribution package maintainers.
I can't code in any meaningful way, nor do I aspire to. I could easily pay for a supported version of icewm, but I don't care to pay someone just to keep it alive. I want someone to take a personal interest in the code, to ensure that it remains up to date, to make it run on Wayland or whatever. I want someone to own the code, be proud of it. Is there a general solution for this situation, apart from whoring for attention on Slashdot?"
