Thanks Jeff for the feedback. This is being noted.

It doesn't...
Engage spec:

BuildRequires: libjpeg-devel
Requires: esmart, imlib2, imlib2-devel, edje, ecore, evas, ewl

I guess you're not using the engage module of E17. The stand-alone
engage can only be used in E16. It's possible to use the stand-alone
version in E17 but it's a little but unclean.

>From FAQ:

E17 doesn't support fake transparency. Real transparency is used by
E17 modules instead. It is possible to force fake transparency usage
by setting a root window background with Esetroot (included with
Eterm) or e17setroot (included with e_utils, needs Esetroot to be able
to force fake transparency). Note that the background you set with
Esetroot will now show up in E17, only the applications that use fake
transparency will see it. Note that this is a pretty ugly workaround -
some apps may not work correctly even if you force fake transparency
with Esetroot/e17setroot.

To load the engage module in E17, perform:

enlightenment_remote -module-load engage

This documentation will explain to you the difference between
standalone engage and engage module:

Well for this request, I'm afraid this is beyond my control. This is
the decision of the lead developer if he wants to do that. I will
feedback this to the developers list and Cc to you.
We can thus see what they think of it.
