[hackers] Re: [dwm][PATCH] Remove BUGS and TODO

As an added note:

The included Man page already has a "BUGS" section. There is no
overlap between the bugs in the Man page and the bugs in the BUGS
file. I think keeping some Bugs in the Man page is a good idea,
particularly when there is a workaround. However, I think this is
another reason why there should be no BUGS file included in the source
