Status of Compiz Fusion packages submission into Fedora

I noticed Adel Gaddlah ( drago01 ) have submitted several compiz-fusion packages for review in BZ. He already pushed compiz-bcop into rawhide and in the process of getting the fusion plugins reviewed

#253692 Review Request: compiz-fusion - Collection of Compiz Fusion plugins for Compiz
#253693 Review Request: compiz-fusion-extras - Additional Compiz Fusion plugins for Compiz

With this semester seems like its gonna be a busy semester, guess I'll just leave the fedora submission & maintaining to him.. hope the packages will get into fedora before the feature freeze ..

On a sidenote .. i just noticed screenlets now have 0.0.10 release available .. and it now works with Fedora (the older release doesnt work because Fedora's DBUS version was too new for it). I'll package it when I have time.

I'm currently mirroring rawhide into my LAN server and planning to switch from F7 to rawhide when its done. Once compiz-fusion 0.5.2 gets it way into Fedora, i'll drop it from my repository and will start packaging compiz(-fusion) 0.6.0. Compiz 0.6.0 now requires XCB which, if i'm not mistaken, is not available for F7 and earlier.
