Hi Factory contributors,
It's been a while that I invested time in Compiz and the move of various desktop environments to be compositing themselves made compiz for big parts obsoleted... given, it still has nice effects but I am not even sure how well and if it currently works in Factory...
And as I don't use compiz anymore myself, there is only little use in claiming maintenership on it anymore: I would only run after issues instead of pro-actively taking care of them.
Compiz upstream is mainly busy adjusting it for ubuntu unity.
If nobody steps up to take over compiz maintainership within a week, I will file drop requests for the various compiz packages. It's better to not ship anything nobody tests rather than ship it non-functional.
Looking forward for your offers to take over!
I'm happy to announce here that Kai-Uwe Behrmann has accepted the challenges of maintaining Compiz for openSUSE.
Please join me in wishing him all the best. The chalenges around compiz, which links against gnome and kde, both fast moving targets, can be complex at times. But I am sure Kai-Uwe will manage those just well.
Best regards, Dominique
The Compiz repository is intended to be switched to the stable version. My main reasoning for putting effort into Compiz packaging is, to provide one ICC colour managed window manager under openSUSE through CompICC. There are currently no alternatives for integrated whole screen colour correction under Linux.
kind regards Kai-Uwe Behrmann
