Description Brandon Captain 2010-05-20 02:07:16 UTC
Komposé offers a great new way to manage a big number of windows on different Virtual Desktops. It creates a fullscreen view where every window is represented by a scaled screenshot of its own.
Thanks to the KDE framework it is possible to create those screenshots "on the fly" while you are working without much overhead. The image scaling is done through the high performance image library Imlib2.

Reproducible: Always

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild 
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The 
sunrise overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to 
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry 
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this 
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,
