Just a question: are these packages going to be maintained? Any chance 
that they show up in the main debian repository in the near future?

I'm just asking, because the packages work basically ok for me (on 
unstable) with a few minor tweaks... but I'm missing the gnome-glx-* 
tools which are used to setup the desktop... they are supposed to come 
with the compiz package (at least in SuSE), but I cannot find them. How 
am I going to setup compiz and xgl as default under gnome? The howto on 
the OpenSuSe Wiki doesn't work, as the necessary tools are missing. :(

On the other hand, it seems not all compiz plugins are working.

Could you give me a hand or shed some light into the darkness?

Thanks
Arne
