I have removed the wm_0_92_0 branch. If you have cloned the repository
from http://hg.windowmaker.info/wmaker please make a new clone.

I am going to do things a little smarter this time:

1) I am going to name the branch wm_0_92 to better reflect that it is
   the 0.92.x release set, and tag the 0.92.1 and future releases as
   they are made. No need to make any further branches off of that line.

2) I will post any proposed changesets before actually applying them. An
   emailed changeset can be applied to a local repository with the
   command ``hg import --exact'' 

   Local changesets can be submitted via the ``hg email'' command. If
   you don't have this, please enable the ``patchbomb'' extension.

   $ echo "hgext.patchbomb =" >> $HOME/.hgrc

   This will allow us to move forward rapidly and with few mistakes that
   will require a rollback.

I welcome any comments. I am also available on IRC on the #windowmaker
channel on the Freenode network (irc.freenode.net:6667).
