Hi, I would like to ask some details about this:
As some of you might know, I’m using awesome for a window manager and
have been providing RPMS for quite some time for it on my website.

May I use the peoples repository to provide it as well as a customized
cairo (with xcb enabled) ?

Will users be able to add this as another repository ?

I must admit the process was quite painful for me up till now, this
sounds to me like an easy way to provide and maintain this RPM.

If we switch to git for the VCS, I would just make my own branch on top
of the regular cairo/awesome branch, and it would definitely ease this
process. WDYT ?
