Ive seen quite a lot of disturbing posts about compiz dying and sam being a single lone soul working on compiz at the request of ubuntu guys ...
Surely its in the best interest of Linuxmint dev's that this project not die ? I mean you guys are actively working on mate and compiz is a big part in making mate glamerous ... 99% of mate users run compiz im sure. If Compiz dies mate will become alot less glamurous.
The last few versions of compiz has actively seen plugin after plugin being removed with just the main plugins being supported currently.
So my question is this, Why dont the Linuxmint Crew get in touch with Sam and reach out and start helping on the project ? surely you can spare a dev to look into assisting work forward on compiz ? Its in everyone's best interest. I just dont understand why everyone just stands idly by and watches that project slowly dying when it will have a big impact on quite a few distributions, including mint.
