Thanks!  It looks really good.  We can remove the Changelog section; people
can look at the release descriptions and/or Git history from now on.
Maintaining this is a doubling of effort for absolutely no reason.

In terms of the FAQ, have you (for now) just copied that from $FVWM.GIT/docs/
?  If so, I can remove that file from the FVWM repo and make the one in
fvwmorg.gh.io the authoritative version (as it should be).  Same goes for
removing other files from the FVWM repo too, but that's a different concern.

Maybe.  It might be easier to just direct people towards things like
Fvwm-{Crystal,Nightshade}.  The icons/sounds/etc., can just be forgotten
about.  They're so old, it's not even funny, and if someone *really* wants
those, shove them on the wiki.

Maximizing of the div, perhaps?

Thanks for this, Jaimos.  One question:  how would we handle adding new
screenshots?  There's a script which runs to generate some HTML.  I presume
this is manual at the moment?

You've got a whole bunch of files that shouldn't be committed; will discuss
this with you on IRC if you like, and we've a little bit of work to do with
tidying up, but from what I can tell, this looks more-or-less complete.

Good job!
