During the creation of the unity7 maintainers team it had been brought to my attention that compiz was a stack of code that would need maintaining throughout this cycle. There are some volunteers on the unity7 team who have C++ programming skillset but do not know the filesystem, flags and pointers to get started on working with compiz.
So I asked Sam if he could help us with advice and pointers on what we need to do to get started.
I have a lot of experience testing compiz and ccsm but not on fixing it. There are others also who I am trying to recruit to the discussion who have a lot of practical experience with triaging compiz bugs but have not joined the hub as of yet. I believe you are one of those persons who has experience with compiz maintenance.
So my original question was:
I need your help with compiz. I . along with other individuals, are
spearheading an attempt to have unity7 become an official flavor. We are
working this effort through the community hub.
Our launchpad page is : https://launchpad.net/~unity7maintainers
We have a few programmers on board and perhaps you may be able to give us
some advice and pointers on what we have to maintain., so, knowing your
experience in these matters I invite you to the team.
Also , one of the volunteers asked me to start a thread. I assume that this thread may pick up after the holiday.
