arandr quick fix invalid literal for int with base 10

Very dirty fix

If you ever get this, be aware that it's a known bug, and it's because of the "i" in:
 [mihamina@dell-f17 ~]$ xrandr -q

    640x350        85.1   
 HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 
 DP1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 
Upstream have to fix it, but waiting for that, edit line 150

  for d in details: 
                 # o.modes.append(Size(int(a) for a in d.strip().split(" ")[0].split("x"))) 
                 o.modes.append(Size(a for a in d.strip().split(" ")[0].split("x"))) 

This will make your arandr work again. A package update will overwrtite this.

A better than worst fix

In my sample repository, you can find the last version of my (still dirty) fix:

vmware net_device trans_start

VMWare Workstation 12 and Kernel 4.7 When recompiling vmware kernel modules on a kernel 4.7, I get this error:

/tmp/modconfig-xrrZGZ/vmnet-only/netif.c:468:7: error: ‘struct net_device’ has no member named ‘trans_start’; did you mean ‘mem_start’?     dev->trans_start = jiffies;
This seems to be an already encountered problem: I choosed to replace the line, instead of deleting it.

- dev->trans_start = jiffies; + netif_trans_update(dev); I also noted that I had to re-tar the modified sources instead of leaving them untared, because the compilation process only takes the archives. 
On precedent editions of these files, I just left the modified folders "vmnet-only/" and "vmmon-only/" expanded without the need to re-tar them.

Jira workflow for new projects

Associated workflow creation I'm a Jira Cloud user and begining from some version 6, I noticed that when I create a project, it automatically creates a Workflow and Issue Scheme that is prepended by the project key and which is a copy of the default scheme.
I always had to make a cleanup after creating a project. Default workflow for new projects I also miss a feature that would allow me to make a custom workflow (and globally custom project setting) the default for new projects I create.
Solution: Create with shared configuration While searching, I noticed that with Jira Cloud which is version 7.1.0 at the time I write, there is a link at the bottom of the "Create project" wizard:
"Create with shared configuration" will allow me to select the project I want the new one to share configuration with.

The new created project will use the same configuration as the project I selectThere will be no creation of Workflow and Issue Scheme that I need to cleanup
