I now autogenerate this at release time via Github Actions, where the
relevant bugs/pull-requests, etc., are pulled from Github and formatted
accordingly in CHANGELOG.md

Right now, I've pre-scoped bugs/PRs/etc., which I feel should be in the 1.0.5
release here:


This is somewhat arbitrary on my part in that there's no real end-goal for a
given release, other than what I think should be in it -- and typically what
I've been doing is amassing changes and releasing when it feels right, even if
items against that milestone might not yet have been finished.  In such cases,
those items are moved forward to the next release.

I don't think fvwm is in an "unstable" phase.  It seems to be "OK", although
there's many rough edges still left to tidy up -- not helped by my own
butchery of fvwm over the past year...
