xcompmgr conflicts/replaces xapps.
It seems that the intended package is different from what currently is being used by the linuxmint x-apps project: https://github.com/linuxmint/xapps
It's now the name of their common library.

On Manjaro we have just introduced the complete set of x-apps, including the xapps package and I just realized that xcompmgr is trying to replace the package...

Would it be possible for you to remove xapps at least from the replaces-arrow?
Otherwise we'll have to find new name for our new xapps package.
Thanks a lot.
This task depends upon

We can remove xapps from replaces/conflicts, it has been in the package from 2008. I doubt there's still systems with old xapps around. Upgrades from systems dating back to 2008 will fail on other parts anyways.
