I think we should drop emerald-themes, I haven't followed compiz dev, but emerald-themes hasn't been updated since 2007 (or any new code in git since then)
Another reason to drop it (conversation in #compiz)
2010-09-01 18:03:30 coz_ td123, if you want more emerald themes you should probaby go to gnome-look.org and download them 2010-09-01 18:03:46 td123 coz_: I'm more interested in the status, I don't use it :) 2010-09-01 18:03:57 td123 coz_: why would anyone want to use it 2010-09-01 18:04:30 coz_ td123, :) well it does have a few nice options but it is essentially badly coded ... I believe someone tried to rewrited in for compiz ++ but I have not tired it 2010-09-01 18:04:45 soreau td123: No one has worked on it for a long time now and it isnt supported at all officially 2010-09-01 18:04:56 soreau It just happens to still work 2010-09-01 18:05:07 coz_ td123, a long while back ...a new decorator was discussed for about 15 minutes :) 2010-09-01 18:05:40 coz_ td123, but right now gtk window decorator and kde4 window decorator are essentially all there is 2010-09-01 18:05:52 td123 ok, thanks :)
From a user's perspective, Emerald themes may be badly coded, but
they're just so much NICER than gtk-window-decorator themes =).
Its going to be a moot point though, once compiz++ comes out. I've switched to gtk-window-decorator already since I've been testing that on and off.
So yes, I use emerald-themes personally but based on various sources it IS deprecated.
