Description Jared Brown 2007-02-06 19:31:41 UTC
Description of problem: As of Release: 0.1.9999.1 the Beryl project has split the plugins and now maintains unsupported plugins in a separate archive. These plugins are missing in Extras. There should be a package for beryl-plugins-unsupported. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.1.9999.1
Comment 1 Jarod Wilson 2007-02-06 19:45:19 UTC
Based on the name of the package and its README (included below), I'm somewhat inclined to say no thank you to packaging these bits up... Is there really a compelling reason to do this? I suppose if they're in their own package that people have to manually install (i.e., not sucked in by beryl-gnome or beryl-kde), it wouldn't hurt too much... ----8<---- Beryl extra plugins: this module contains plugins that are either: * unstable * only modestly maintained * or completely unmaintained We don't want to drop them, and will do baseline maintenance to make sure they compile (should they be unmaintained). We hope to get them maintained or stabilized, and pulled back into -plugins. THESE ARE NOT MEANT FOR PRODUCTION SYSTEMS! THESE ARE UNSUPPORTED OFFICIALLY! Use at your own risk. ----8<----

Due to lack of a compelling reason to package the -unsupported beryl plugins, closing WONTFIX.

I suggest that this bug be revisited and have therefore reopened it. I agree that the package shouldn't be required by any other packages due to its nature. This package would provide additional features to a user. It is preferred that it is provided via a repository. This is attractive to users such as myself who were happily using certain plugins that until recently were part of the standard plugin set. The package would be clearly named as unsupported so users would be informed of what they are installing. In my experience the plugins provided were stable and provided attractive features. Part of the fun of Beryl is to be able to play around with these new features and plugins. By including this package users will be able to try these plugins out and possibly decide to take over their maintenance.

Okay, fine, but you get to pick up the pieces. :) New build including unsupported forthcoming...
