The fvwm-web documentation (if you can call it that) is found here:


Note the scripts (I've mentioned them in other threads here) which link

Other than that, everything is in PHP.  When the website is updated (currently
with 'cvs update') then that's polled sometime later via a cronscript which
makes the content live on fvwm.org
