Me neither, and it's not something I'm bothered to find out.  In most
cases, it seems sourceforge sites have been taken over by squatters.  Although
that's perhaps not the case here, I don't have control of that site and don't
wish to.  As I said before, in most google searches, fvwm.org is usually the
place that's referenced.

That's not something that's going to work for fvwm3, as the documentation is
now rendered via asciidoctor.  To maintain this list, we'd have to produce
this a different way.

It's no different to how it has always been.  It's just that now, Github is
being used for CI/CD and for people to submit patches.

It's using Markdown and Jekyll (which is what is used for Github Pages as
well).  See:  https://www.fvwm.org/Wiki/ -- this will tell where to find the
repository to checkout for the Wiki as well (it's a part of the fvwm.org
website code).
