eyecreate added a comment to T4194: steamos-compositor and steamos-modeswitch-inhibitor.

Thanks you for your thoughts. I think openSuse Tumbleweed is a good example of how a rolling release can have 3rd party repos, but I can understand not wanting to open that can of worms for the Solus project. Maybe there will be another chance to include a tool like this once Valve properly releases gamescope.

I understand not wanting to take on "abandoned" packages, but lack of development may not matter if it does what it needs to still. Even in it's current state, it will likely be useful for any X11 based setup for a while. Despite that, it's understandable to not take some packages on when you realize that a rolling release distro would want to emphasize active codebases to help avoid where some software breaks when a more active codebases changes and they don't.
Still, I don't know of Solus having any "3rd party repo" support like PPAs, so it makes it hard to distribute software built against the distro but not fitting it's acceptance rules.(I don't think snaps/flatpak is proper for this kind of package either)

I have created package configs for steamos-compositor and steamos-modeswitch-inhibitor. Let me know what steps are needed to get these in the repos.(I believe these packages need to be accepted first)

eyecreate closed T6713: Desktop session manager for steam: steam-login as Wontfix.

It doesn't look like it offers much difference and seems those pieces are taken from official SteamOS. Outside the fact I have this working right now, T4194 seems to be what likely should be implemented in repos over this.
