    I got the current 19b3 source for IceWM icewm-1.5.5+git20190610 from the antiX repos. The autohide taskbar doesn’t work right when double height is on.

    I reported the bug to the devs and got the fix from github

    https://github.com/bbidulock/icewm/commit/6ce96b1ff277284834e7005e21ff1289cbc5aa32

    and was able to incorporate the changes and build it and test it, but didn’t understand how the package changelog and version is to be done. The Debian instructions reference a program called dpatch but I don’t have a Debian bug number to give it.

    So at present I have it fixed for me on my machine, but wondering how I could do this better? I can post the revised source code in a zip if that helps. Its just one of the programs.

    Thanks
