Also change the derivation attribute and name to Picom, a maintained
fork of Compton.

Picom creates compton binaries too, so no config changes required elsewhere.

Motivation for this change
Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nix-review --run "nix-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date

Commits between 7.2 and 7.5 show that the primary change was the rename, with commits addressing a few memory leaks (and some non-functional cleanup).

Assuming the rename is done right (everything still evals? :P), this seems safe to me :).


Oh, actually:

  • Please rename the directory to reflect the new name (compton -> picom)
  • The NixOS module needs to be updated similarly-- both renaming the file and updating to use pkgs.picom.
  • Please add an alias, so that users of pkgs.compton are warned but not broken.
