Bug#566900: RFH: openbox -- standards compliant, fast, light-weight, extensible window manager

Package: wnpp
Severity: normal

I request assistance with maintaining the openbox package.
I am especially interested in a co-maintainer who uses openbox in a gnome or 
lxde environment as it is a PITA to debug these setups (at least when you're 
not using them). The project is currently hosted at alioth and uses svn so it 
shouldn't be a big deal to team-maintain this.

Please let me know, if you're interested.

The package description is:
 Openbox works with your applications, and makes your desktop easier to manage.
 This is because the approach to its development was the opposite of what seems
 to be the general case for window managers.  Openbox was written first to
 comply with standards and to work properly.  Only when that was in place did
 the team turn to the visual interface.
 Openbox is fully functional as a stand-alone working environment, or can be
 used as a drop-in replacement for the default window manager in the GNOME or
 KDE desktop environments.
 Openbox 3 is a completely new breed of window manager.  It is not based upon
 any existing code base, although the visual appearance has been based upon
 that of Blackbox.  Openbox 2 was based on the Blackbox 0.65.0 codebase.
 Some of the things to look for in Openbox are:
  * ICCCM and EWMH compliance!
  * Very fast
  * Chainable key bindings
  * Customizable mouse actions
  * Window resistance
  * Multi-head Xinerama support!
  * Pipe menus
