I don't find tasklist-skip in the master branch, by git-grep, but it's

Previously, wm/commands/gnome.jl and wm/state/gnome.jl existed, but
the current trunk doesn't have them. It doesn't appear to me that any
gnome "updated command" exist in Sawfish.

* So archaic stuffs are dropped, but "update" doesn't exist?
* previous commands/gnome and state/gnome are obsolete?

I've attached the current patch for news.texi.

Thank you very much for your prev & next explanations.
