Prior to the contrib modules being split off into their own repository, they were part of the main repository. Some of the optional dependencies need to be moved from stumpwm to stumpwm-contrib.

Does task type "General Gripe" mean this comment section is reasonable forum for conversation, instead of point-click-wontfix complaints?

Well, the options are: bug report; feature request; support request and general gripe.

I guess it doesn’t really fit in any of these categories, feel free to discuss it here though. :p

My guess is that the issue on GitHub where our conversation began is still relevant; one way I encountered it was forcing the loading of cl-swank's entry point from the vanilla stumpwm package.

I'll move over all the optdepends (except emacs) to stumpwm-contrib, as well as adding a couple of new optdepends: pass & pinentry.

Let me know if there is anything else I can modify.

My belief is that starting a swank server from within the window manager ought to be one of the core capabilities, instead of only one of the contribs; however, there is zero chance of my magically hacking up solutions for this more quickly than anyone can hope, so meanwhile I do not have anything helpful to suggest.

Thank you for your time!

Firstly, I see you've updated both packages stumpwm and stumpwm-contrib; thank you.

I'm including one link to the github issue that began the griping, in case more folks want to join the brainstorming:

Here is one of those wonderful "I had a problem, I fixed my problem, thank you for clicking links on webpages" issues, probably about similar problems:
