Great news!
Thanks to all those who made this happen :)

> After several weeks of discussion the leaders of Compiz and Beryl have agreed
> that the two communities shall reunite. This decision is supported by both
> David and Quinn and represents the majority decision of the administrators
> and developers in each community. At this early stage not a lot has been
> decided, but these are the main points of the agreement:
> - As had previously been decided, Compiz will effectively split in to two
> divisions: Compiz-core and Compiz-extra.
> - The Compiz-Core division will continue in the form described here
> http://forum.go-compiz.org/viewtopic.php?t=677. The name of the package will
> remain compiz.
> - The Compiz-Extra division (what we think of as Compiz) will merge with the
> Beryl project to form a new community with the temporary name of "Composite
> Community".
> - The codebase of the new community will consist of the best plugins,
> decorators, settings tools and related applications from the Beryl and Compiz
> communities. We will create a code review panel consisting of the best
> developers from each community who will see that any code included in a
> release package meets the highest standards and is suitable for distribution
> in an officially supported package. Support for existing packages will be
> continued at least until the first stable release of the new project.
> - The websites of each community will remain up and running until a new, user
> oriented site is completed. Since the forums are the heart of each community,
> they will be merged first. Once we have a single community forum we can use
> it to discuss the additional details, including the name of the new project,
> as well as setting the goals for the first release.
> Congratulations to everyone who has worked to reunite the communities. Well
> done!
