I would like to get a better understanding as to why
Quinn's patches have not been accepted into the compiz
git tree.

I feel Quinn's patches could greatly improve compiz.
She has made quite a lot of progress wrt to enhancing
compiz with her cgwd window decorator which allows
users to write their own themes for window

Also, many of the plugins that are in compiz.net are
MIT or GPL based and It would be great if you could
merge them into compiz git.

David, It would be great if compiz could become more
open to development from outside in cooperation with
yourself, plus it would be helpful if compiz could
determine if it was in Xgl or AIGLX mode. I believe
Quinn has some patches to allow for this. 

Quinn, are you willing to work with David on making
the compiz API flexible to allow for customizations as
your making in your code base? How can this be done? 

Would you both be willing to discuss how to better
enhance compiz?  It would be best to avoid a fork if

Thank you,
