[Bug 1868443] Re: 20.04 - compiz-mate removed from compiz:master by Compiz team


Hmm, seems like compiz-mate should be removed completely... I did not do
that because I though that compiz-mate package installs also MATE
Compatibility plugin.

So yes, MATE should have separate package that will install
configuration files. Or should be added to package that provides MATE
Compiz session. MATE developers should know best place for that. Liked
merge request has links to merge requests that adds configuration files
for Unity and GNOME Flashback.

Feel free to ask if some help is needed.

Just looked at matecompat and gnomecompat plugins... I think these
plugins also should be provided by upstream projects - MATE and GNOME
Flashback. GNOME and GNOME Classic does not support different window
managers so it is misleading.

compiz-gnome also needs some work!:
- It installs gtk-window-decorator and it is not GNOME only, it can be and is used by MATE too. 
- It installs GSettings backend for compizconfig, again it is not GNOME specific.
- It installs GSettings schemas, nothing GNOME specific.
- Then there are unity-control-center and gnome-control-center keybinding files.

Looks like GSettings could be moved to compiz-gsettings. gtk-window-
decorator also could have separate package. Not sure what to do with
keybinding files.
