    Programming Lang: C
    Description : manager for on-the-fly transparency changing in X

    transset-df is a program that allows the user to change window
    transparencies on the fly. Supported methods include using window
    manager hotkeys, 'select by pointing' without actually clicking a window,
    and selecting by name and window id. transset-df is a modified version
    of xorg's transset and requires compositing to function. It is meant
    to allow a windowmanger-independent way to support transparency.


    I have been in contact with the upstream developer, who has expressed
    interest in bringing transset-df into debian. Unlike transset, it has
    had releases in 2005, 2006, and 2007, and is still being slowly
    developed upstream. The developer is willing to explicitly provide a
    better license if the public domain parts license is deemed unacceptable
    for Debian.

    Might be a good idea to encourage transset-df upstream to join the
    upstream xorg project and commit his changes there.
