[RFE] Include compiz-fusion
Last modified: 2013-07-03 00:10:44 EDT
What is the nature and description of the request?
Customer want following compiz packages to be included in RHEL-6 minor release:
Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
Customer would like to manage multiple applications windows opened on Desktop
which is found very easy by using compiz effects as per following information
provided by customer:
Scale - just like Apple's Expose feature on Mac. I can look at all the windows
on a VD to quickly find the right one, or I can look at all th windows on all
VDs to quickly find the right one
Expo - shows me a scaled down version of all VDs at once, so that I can see
what is going on in each one and pick the right VD for what I want to do
Window Previews - allow previewing what the window is when mousing over icons
in the taskbar
Shelf - visually scale down a window to allow easy monitoring of that window
w/o taking up lots of desktop real estate
How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements
By installing listed compiz packages in requirement section.
For each functional requirement listed in question 4, specify how Red Hat and
the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.
By installing and successful testing of compiz* packages for RHEL-6.
Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat bugzilla?
How quickly does this need resolved? (desired target release)
Does this request meet the RHEL Inclusion criteria (please review)
List the affected packages
I'm willing to package these for EPEL6, I already co-maintain these packages for fedora.
