I’d like for the two projects to merge someday.
Lutris has “weird” icon and naming for an average newcommer, it’s lacks something for distros to start shipping it by default.
I’d love seeing lutris become kind of accepted gaming app by distros, and this place is currently taken by GNOME Games in my opinion.
Both use GTK and have common goals.
Sure, there would need to be compromises, and who knows what is the stance of both projects, but in the end everybody gains.
