Sad to see LH going down this path...and I hope they don't mess-up LX as well.
FYI, I found the following in the M&M lounge news page:

"Extended status benefits with the ‘new Germanwings’ from 1 July 2013

Extended status benefits with the ‘new Germanwings’
Following the merging of Lufthansa’s decentralised European services outside its Frankfurt and Munich hubs with Germanwings on 1 July 2013, in addition to being able to earn and redeem award miles, you will also be able to earn status miles on all Germanwings flights. When you book a ticket on the Germanwings ‘Best’ fare, you will also receive HON Circle miles.

In addition, as a Frequent Traveller, Senator or HON Circle Member, you will receive the Executive Bonus with 25% more miles and preferential check-in. What’s more, Senators and HON Circle Members can make use of the Companion Award and benefit from Lounge access in other European countries.
You can view the full benefits of the ‘new Germanwings’ here:

* Business Lounge access for a fee (25 euros) or with a ‘Best’ fare booking
** with a ‘Best’ fare booking "
