Yes, where appropriate. Most of the time, I just modified the function and
parameter names to match xcb, sometimes I’ve rephrased a bit and sometimes I’ve
extended the documentation. Have a look at the repository with pre-generated

(git clone, man ./xcb_set_input_focus.3 for example)

Current status: Those 4 requests are done, too. I’m currently working on the
generator/autotools integration.

The github repositories are up to date. Proof-reading and filling in the TODOs
is much appreciated. Especially Error documentation could be easy: It’s
usually just a sentence, but the Xlib-manpages often aren’t very specific and
I’m not that familiar with X11. So maybe someone can help out.

Best regards,
