My guess would be sometime shortly after 6.4 is released.

I updated it last weekend and I think it is ready. When 6.4 is released, I'll test the instructions/code base and if it passes, post it on DaemonForums.

I do have questions for users.

I've been toying with the idea of automatic menu generation using the openbsd pipe menu function, x11/menu-cache and a new port jgmenu.

https://github.com/johanmalm/jgmenu

The goal being that the instructions could be trimmed to a bare install and users would be free to select the apps they want. As long as the app has a freedesktop spec *.desktop file, it will show up in the menu. Perhaps have the menu generated on each login or on user command. As it is now, users have to copy n' paste n' edit placeholder entries in menu.xml and wbar to customize.

x11/wbar still requires manual configuration and could be replaced by a second x11/tint2 panel with just application launchers. Tint2conf gui works well.

I am also considering using the drop n' drag function of x11/yad with net/unworkable for torrent downloads and for printing.

I would be for this. I think menu generation is one of the hardest things to "get right" and I don't think any of the big three do, so it'd be a spot to really stand out.

Btw, a lot of these ports need maintainers--any chance you'd like to step up for some of them?
