Fvwm is a community driven project in which hundreds of contributors have added to Fvwm though out the years by adding features, modules, bug fixes, documentation, configuration examples, and so on. If you would like to ask the community for support, report bugs, commit patches, or just stop by to say hello, contact us using the following.
In addition to the human servants, cats () have also been a big part of the Fvwm community. Check out all of the Fvwm cats that have contributed to Fvwm. Without our Furry Feline Friends, Fvwm would not have been the same.
