Bug Description

Binary package hint: matchbox-window-manager

Matchbox Window Manager doesn't provide x-window-manager virtual package and alternative :(
So, in debian/control file there should be a line:

Provides: x-window-manager

Also there should be postinst/postrm scripts, which installs/removes x-window-manager alternative, look at other window managers packages (e.x. metacity) for example of postinst/postrm scripts.

And this one even guards the update-alternatives call to only happen on configuration.
