This is ratmenu, a simple program that allows you to create X menus from the
shell.  Although designed for ratpoison, it will work with any ICCCM compliant
window manager.
It was forked from 9menu version 1.5, to provide specific support
for the ratpoison window manager.  Where 9menu only responds to the mouse, and
ignores the keyboard, ratmenu has all mouse sensitivity taken out, and only
responds to the keyboard.  Since then it has evolved nifty features and
behaviors of its own.  The source code was also cleaned up and old cruft
weeded out.

ratmenu (2.3.22) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/compat, debian/rules, debian/control: strip down to minimal dh
usage (ratmenu has *nothing* exciting about it, packaging-wise) and
advance to debhelper compatibility level 9. Add buildflags for hardening.
* Makefile: clean up PREFIX/DESTDIR/CFLAGS (hardening now works.)  Move
tests to "humantest" since they're fundamentally interactive for now.
Drop manpage from install rule, since dh doesn't fix that up and we
end up with /usr/man *and* /usr/share/man.

ratmenu (2.3.21) unstable; urgency=medium
* debian/rules: add build-arch, build-indep per Standards-Version
* debian/control: bump Standards-Version to 3.9.5.
* debian/source/format: 3.0 native.
* also uploading to update signatures to a key that is still in the
keyring, otherwise when dgit clone runs dget, it runs dscverify which fails.

ratmenu (2.3.20) unstable; urgency=low
[Thanks to Axel Beckert for the updated patch.  Note that it requires a
useful $LANG setting to actually work, having fonts is not sufficient.]
* Port UTF-8 patch for ratmen
(http://www.rubyist.net/~rubikitch/computer/ratmen/i18n.patch) to
ratmenu. (Closes: #531036).

ratmenu (2.3.17) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/rules, debian/compat, debian/control: debhelper V7.
* debian/changelog: fix name, so it isn't misdetected as an NMU.
* debian/control: move to standards version 3.8.0.
2008-09-27 - Mark Eichin <eichin@thok.org>
ratmenu (2.3.16) unstable; urgency=low
* ratmenu.c: long-overdue emacs-style key bindings, as requested by
kenth@acm.org.  I took a slightly different approach that might make
it easier to add other binding options later, but the patch was
appreciated. (Closes: #430056).
* ratmenu.1: corresponding documentation of the new key bindings.
* debian/changelog: retconned the 2.3.15 entry to make lintian happy.
2008-09-26 - Mark Eichin <eichin@thok.org>
ratmenu (2.3.15) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/menu-method: fixed lintian wrong-path-for-interpreter
(Closes: #483192).
* removed ~ files to fix lintian diff-contains-editor-backup-file.
2007-03-05 - Mark W. Eichin <eichin@thok.org>
ratmenu (2.3.14) unstable; urgency=low
* For real this time (Closes: #377626).
* debian/menu-method: fix lintian wrong-path-for-install-menu.
* debian/control: reviewed upgrading-checklist, raised
Standards-Version.  (Note that we still use -L/usr/X11R6/lib to
simplify backports, 11.8.7 only tells us not to install anything
