I haven't looked at the csm plugin. What configuration system is it
using? Is it a new configuration system? In that case I'm curious to
know why someone felt like there was a need to invent a new one.
We can have 20 configuration plugins as far as I care. However, I'm not
sure which ones should be hosted in the compiz repository on
There's no gconf dependency. The only thing that depends on gconf is the
gconf plugin. I don't see why there should be a desire to drop it, gconf
is the current configuration system for the gnome platform and if you
want to have compiz integrate properly that's what you would want to
