Latest version of fvwm packaged


	The development branch of fvwm is nearing a stable release,
 and has had a huge number of new features. The maintainer has been
 very reluctant to package this branch, even in a people.debian.org
 repository, so I decided to package FVWM 2.5.8 for myself; and I have
 decided to share this with others as well. The packages are
 lintian clean, and can be found at:

deb http://people.debian.org/~srivasta/ packages/
deb-src http://people.debian.org/~srivasta/ packages/source/

       There have been significant new features in the 2.5.X series,
 and just the GNOME 2 compatibility should be enough to require this
 in Sarge.

       These packages were configured as follows (I see no reason not
 to allow rplay and xrender compatibility in fvwm). As you can see
 below, I have included as many of the features as I could.
