I'm the current maintainer of dmenu.

I intend to get dmenu and dwm back on track during the next days. So feel
free to compile me a mail with all the patches you want to see in mainline

It is already on the agenda to reinstate the old config.h approach, not
sure why it was removed.

Having said this, I'm happy to grow and to hand off dmenu to a
trustworthy new maintainer, however I do request more contributions first.

Best regards,
