+ - Beryl/Compiz naming poll->

Submitted by

ketilwaa writes "Beryl/Compiz agreed on a merge some time ago. There is still a lot of tension on this subject, as one can see from the mailing list.

Is the lack of official response hurting the merge? Is it hurting OSS altogether? How did other projects handle such problems?"
