The most actively developed fork of Compton (used by most distros) has been renamed Picom.


Should we adjust the tags () accordingly or at least add a Picom tag to most Compton questions as they'll be relevant?

    A synonym might make sense here -- then users can find the topic using either name. I don't know if there would be confusion around the old name...?

Following the same pattern as what we ended up doing for macOS (Change macos/osx tag synonym), I think the best approach should result in as the main tag and as a synonym. As I understand it, these would be the steps involved (without moderator intervention):

  • Sounds like a plan, I've not got the rep to make a new tag though Sep 17, 2020 at 11:40
  • I’ve created it for you. Sep 17, 2020 at 13:47
