awesome Window Manager on CentOS7

Awesome Window Manager is a tiling manager written in lua.  Unfortunately, it’s not available on Enterprise Linux.  The closest one can get is to install a Fedora19 repository and get it from there.

This post is meant to document the procedure involved in my attempt to create a RHEL7 and/or CentOS7 “native” version of the awesome-wm.rpm package.

I intend to upload it to Fedora’s copr users repositories and then make it available to Software Collections.
