[Bug 1039792] Re: [needs-packaging] [needs-packaging, MIR] ubuntu-default-settings

Adding an ubuntustudio task. It was suggested that ubuntustudio could
simply depend on ubuntu-default-setttings to keep the status quo.
Alternatively, they could be more selective about what settings they'd
like to copy to ubuntustudio-default-settings.

Bug description:
  Ubuntu has customized several GNOME packages with gsettings overrides.
  Moving these overrides to a separate package, recommended by ubuntu-
  desktop would have these advantages:

  1. Reduce our diff with Debian
  2. Make it easier for those who want a pure/custom GNOME experience to get it
  3. Give the GNOMEbuntu project more independence to ship a purer GNOME, or possibly tweak GNOME defaults without needing to affect the flagship Ubuntu desktop.

  This was discussed at UDS:

  And "reducing the delta with Debian" is a recurring UDS discussion.

  Code is temporarily at https://code.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-
  desktop/+junk/ubuntu-default-settings and will be uploaded shortly.

  This will also need to be promoted to main. However since it only
  contains copies of gsettings overrides (most of which are already in
  main), there's not really any code to review.

  There's also an ubuntu-artwork package which maybe should be merged
  into this one.
