Hugo is correct when he says Compiz no longer uses GIT, Ike.

The Compiz website should really be updated and there hasn't been any
commits to GIT in months. All development has shifted to Launchpad
using ~bazaar (for Compiz 0.9+) ... Sam (one of the main compiz-devs)
tried to have both bzr branches, while pushing changes back to GIT
(master branch) - but in the end it made the code and changes harder
to manage. They decided to dump GIT, being as many of the projects
using Compiz (like Unity) live on launchpad/bzr anyway.

Compiz 0.8.8 probably still lives in GIT. But i believe those
Compiz-git packages build 0.9+ series, so they probably should be
ditched in favor of the compiz-bzr packages.

take care
