Maybe add CWM. AFAIK it got started on OpenBSD (where I run it) but it can be run on Linux as well. It is truly minimalistic.

vermaden, it's not always the case that a single request gets something included (especially in a poll that already has a lot of entries). awesome had multiple requests last year as well.
