Fwd: Bug#445607: Make pinentry-gtk-2 transient for the root window

peter_e (Bugzilla)
Please consider the attached request from a Debian user.

Package: pinentry-gtk2
Version: 0.7.3-1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Hi,

the attached patch makes the pinentry-gtk-2 transient for the root
window. This will prevent confusion for the user when another window
seems to have the focus but pinentry-gtk-2 has the keyboard grab. It
also helps window managers such as xmonad to properly position the
window.

Thanks,
Joachim

Thanks for submitting this.  Is there documentation on the transient
stuff, so that one can try to properly understand it?
