Bug#55811: dist upgrade didn't mention that fvwm2 was superseded by fvwm.

[Cc to -devel; does anyone have any ideas how to handle this problem?]

> Package: fvwm2
> Version: 2.1.10-2

This is really difficult, primarily because the fvwm2 package doesn't
exist any longer.  The new fvwm package Conflicts and Replaces fvwm2,
so I would have hoped that it would appear somehow.  I don't know
where to send this bug.
