> Is there any specific reason to carry unity specific gsettings
overrides in ubuntu-settings? Unity is not a default desktop anymore nor
it is installed in the default live iso.

Yes, by centralizing the settings, it makes it easier and faster to
change overrides for multiple flavors. It also allows for easier
comparisons between flavors.

I don't think there's a problem with review of Unity merge proposals for
ubuntu-settings taking too long. Currently, the Unity team doesn't have
any direct upload rights, right? So you'll need review anyway.

Title:
  Decouple unity related settings as unity-settings

Status in ubuntu-settings package in Ubuntu:
  Confirmed

Bug description:
  This is an attempt to resolve "* Shared GSettings keys" issue listed
  under https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Unity/NotDefaultIssues.

  Ubuntu so far is providing session related overrides for both ubuntu &
  unity sessions in a single package, i.e. ubuntu-settings. But now that
  Unity is not the default desktop it doesn't make any sense to carry
  unity related overrides in ubuntu-settings.

  For this purpose I have created a new project: unity-settings
  (https://code.launchpad.net/~khurshid-alam/unity-settings/trunk) and
  the binary would be unity-settings in universe.

  To make this happen in under 18.04 cycle, the work-flow should be:

  1) Have unity-settings in the universe
  2) Have ubuntu-unity-desktop in the universe
  3) Let ubuntu-unity-desktop depends on unity-settings
  4) Drop unity related settings in ubuntu-settings (merge request in-progress)
