I only removed unity specific gsettings overrides from ubuntu-settings.
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.
We carry unity specific gsettings overrides in unity-settings and make
unity-session depends on unity-settings. That way Ubuntu and Unity
remain separate without overlapping.
And as you said we also want to decouple unity-session from gnome-
session so two pieces code remains separate.
It will easier for us to maintain unity if we keep these separated from

Decouple unity related settings as unity-settings
Status in ubuntu-settings package in Ubuntu:
This is an attempt to resolve "* Shared GSettings keys" issue listed
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
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)
