The potato fvwm2 package (note it now has a new maintainer):
Status: install ok installed
Maintainer: Julian Gilbey <email@example.com>
Depends: fvwm (>> 2.2)
Description: F(?) Virtual Window Manager, version 2.xx.
The FVWM 2,xx is now packaged as fvwm since version 2.2 was
officially released as a stable package. This Debian package is
provided to allow smooth upgrades from the old fvwm2 package to the
new fvwm package.
