Compiz was already being dropped from Fedora
as there was no package maintainer at the beginning of the year for this OpenGL compositing window system on Fedora and there was not much interest from Fedora users. Compiz is needed for the Unity desktop on Fedora
, among other potential use-cases, but now it's being retired once again.
A message on the Fedora development list
today starts off with "I've re-retired the compiz package."
There were a few people before that backed the Fedora Compiz package per the Fedora pkgdb
while now the Compiz package maintainer is asking to delete the rights.
