The fix for this bug in compiz being released with milestone 0.9.8.0 is good news, although it's not obvious how this will resolve the issue for users of 12.04.

* Will compiz milestone 0.9.8.0 be released with ubuntu milestone ubuntu-12.04.2?

* Will compiz milestone 0.9.8.0 be pushed to precise-updates, precise-proposed or precise-backports before the release of ubuntu-12.04.2?

* This bug is affects compiz-wall-plugin and compiz-plugins-main which both have fixes commited, does the fix for this issue require patches to all 3 packages?

* When the fixes are released for compiz-wall-plugin and compiz-plugins-main, will they be pushed to precise-proposed or precise-backports before the release of ubuntu-12.04.2?

It seems to me that the developers of these packages are coordinating to release fixes to their packages for the next SRU, 12.04.2; however, prior to the release of 12.04.1 it seems that the developers where coordinating to release the fixes for 12.04.1.

I can't speak for the 100 other people affected by this bug but following the release of 12.04.1, I would appreciate an update on how these fixes are being released, and when we can expect this issue to be resolved for users of 12.04.
