Bug#907640: compiz: Migrating to compiz-reloaded?




Package: compiz
Severity: important

Hello,

The launchpad upstream for compiz has switched to light maintenance mode
and will not make further development since Ubuntu has stopped using it.

How do people feel about switching to compiz-reloaded?

https://gitlab.com/compiz

Basically they restarted from the 0.8.8 version to avoid all recent
changes which have apparently introduced issues (see
http://compiz-debian.tuxfamily.org/ ). We can probably just take the
packaging from tuxfamily and work in hand with them to maintain it
officially in Debian.

Of course, since this is an older (but maintained) version, some
recent features are not there. Perhaps people can check, by installing
packages from tuxfamily, that everything they need is there?
