On my Centos 7.x box:

$ yum list available | grep  -y compiz
compiz.x86_64                              1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux         nux-dextop
compiz-debuginfo.x86_64                    1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux         nux-dextop
compiz-devel.x86_64                        1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux         nux-dextop
compiz-lxde.x86_64                         1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux         nux-dextop
compiz-mate.x86_64                         1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux         nux-dextop
compiz-xfce.x86_64                         1:0.8.8-27.el7.nux         nux-dextop

looks as if it's not available for Gnome.

I also vaguely recall recently seeing a posting that the reason for it not being
available for Gnome is that Gnome already has compositing stuff built in.
But I could be wrong about thatl.
