Description Kyle Sanderson 2014-02-11 17:24:40 UTC
Maui-Project has a Desktop Environment called Hawaii which uses Wayland. It's still in rapid development; a package for it would be quite useful.

Reproducible: Always

I'm interested in working on some ebuilds for bringing Hawaii to Gentoo. The source for Hawaii's components resides at I checked to see how Arch Linux handled packages for Hawaii, and it looks like 4 separate packages must be installed. Does a separate bug need to be filed for each ebuild, or should all the separate ebuilds be posted on this bug?
Comment 2 Kyle Sanderson 2015-11-26 03:59:33 UTC
Thanks for the interest Patrick. In the past it's been a single patch per part, such as ebuilds and then startup script if applicable. However, I don't know if this is proper or standard (looking at rtorrent and friends here).

I've had some time to actually put some work into writing ebuilds for the Hawaii desktop the past few days. I hope to have some fairly polished ebuilds ready to upload some time in the next few days. But it has made me wonder about what category to put them in. For the time being, I have them in x11-wm/, but the fact is that Hawaii is a full-fledged desktop environment. It's not just a standalone window manager. Maybe it should have its own category like other desktops (KDE, Gnome, XFCE, LXDE, etc.) do.

Initial ebuilds of the Hawaii Desktop Environment can be found here:

Would you be willing to maintain these packages through Proxy Maintainers project?

This is a very young project. I doubt that people will be interested.
