      1 managed - Let dmenu be managed by the window manager with the -wm option

      5 Description from source:
      6     """
      7     Adds a -wm flag which sets override_redirect to false; thus letting your window manager manage the 
      8     dmenu window.
      9 
     10     This may be helpful in contexts where you don't want to exclusively bind dmenu or want to treat dmenu 
     11     more as a 'window' rather than as an overlay.

     14 == YOU MUST ==
     15 (1). Place the patch file in /etc/portage/patches/x11-misc/dmenu/ and run 'emerge dmenu'
     16 
     17 == YOU PROBABLY SHOULD ==
     18 (1). Run dmenu with the '-wm' option to let it be managed just like a regular window
     19 
     20 == PATCH MODIFICATIONS ==
     21 (1). Removed all changes made to 'config.def.h'
     22 (2). Modified Chunk #4 of the 'dwm.c' changes to reflect the 4.8 codebase
     23 (2). Added a 'nodoc' patch version which strips out added documentation
     24 
     25 == INCOMPATIBILITIES ==
     26 THIS PATCH MAKES CHANGES TO DMENU'S BUILT-IN DOCUMENTATION, WHICH CAN CAUSE CONFLICTS WITH OTHER PATCHES!
     27 If you encounter such conflicts, try emerging with the 'managed-nodoc.patch' file instead. It is the
     28 same as the 'managed.patch' file except it makes no changes to the documentation.
