awesome(window manager) seems nice,
tested few apps:
  Geany(gives warning errors after quiting)
  Abiword(has font issues)
  Xchat
  Firefox
  Gimp
  Gnumeric

If its been tested and reported ok by others, it can be nice candidate for 
next alpine version. It also supports lua based config, which has strong 
support in alpine.

A meta package needs to be there to take care of the installation.

Here are steps to install awesome on clean/fresh alpine:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Setup alpine,  and add edge repo, both main and testing
2. apk update
3. apk add awesome aterm feh
    add other apps on need
4. setup-xorg-base
5. adduser <newuser>
6. logout and login as newuser
7. echo 'awesome' >> /home/<newuser>/.xinitrc
8. cp -r /etc/xdg/awesome  /home/<newuser>/.config
9. vi /home/<newuser>/.config/awesome/rc.lua
      replace instances of xterm with aterm
10. startx

There is http://unagi.mini-dweeb.org/ (compositing magager), 
reported to work with awesome, would it worth adding in alpine testing?
Thought still marked as 'early stage of development'.

Or a setup-awesome-desktop script.

Do you think you could add this to wiki? + a screen shot ;)
