gnome-session (3.37.0-2ubuntu1) groovy; urgency=medium

  [ Marco Trevisan (TreviƱo) ]
  * Merge with debian, containing new upstream release.
  * debian/patches: Refreshed as per upstream source changes
  * debian/control:
    - Bump ubuntu-session dependencies to match gnome ones
    - Set ubuntu-session breaks on shell and g-s-d (as gnome-session does)
    - Bump dependency to meson 0.53 as per upstream patches
    - Add Breaks/Replaces to unity-session on gnome-session-bin
  * debian/gnome-session-bin.install,
    - Install gnome-session common systemd unit files to gnome-session-common
      while the ubuntu and gnome configuration drop-ins {ubuntu,gnome}-session.
      Add executable bit and use dh-exec to enable [linux-any] there.
  * debian/unity-session.install,
    - Move gnome-session.service to unity-session (it's unity specific)
  * d/p/ubuntu/ubuntu/kill_the_fail_whale.patch:
    - Dropped. The fail whale is still used as triggered by systemd, the bugs
      that the patch was addressing are 5 years old now and there's no point to
      carry this patch even more when upstream believes that the dialog should
      be shown. Also from an Ubuntu POV it's a better user experience than just
      going back to gdm.
  * d/p/meson-Require-meson-0.53.patch,
    - Cherry pick upstream patches that allow to generate session files from
      meson, so that we can reuse the same codepath and reduce duplication for
      ubuntu session files.
  * d/p/ubuntu/ubuntu-sessions.patch:
    - Refresh as per upstream meson changes, make it generate ubuntu systemd
      configuration drop-in.
    - Don't pass --systemd anymore, this is the default
  * Remaining changes with debian:
    - debian/control.in:
      + Recommend session-migration
      + Move xwayland dependency to gnome-session and make gnome-session
        Arch: any
      + Split gnome-startup-applications to a separate binary package so
        that it can be uninstalled without breaking the system
      + Add unity-session
    - Split ubuntu-session out of gnome-session.
    - debian/data: Add old-style systemd user session used by Unity
    - debian/gnome-session-bin.postinst, debian/gnome-session-bin.prerm:
       Moved registering gnome-session binary as a session manager to
       gnome-session-bin package
    - Add gnome-session-wayland transitional package
    - don't install gnome-mimeapps.list (installed by desktop-file-utils in
      debian/gnome-session-common.dirs, gnome-session-common.install,
      gnome-session-common.maintscript, gnome-session-common.postinst
    - debian/patches/ubuntu/kill_the_fail_whale.patch:
      + Kill the Fail Whale as it tends to be more annoying than helpful
    - debian/patches/ubuntu/support_autostart_delay.patch:
      + Bugzilla patch to support adding a delay to autostart apps, using
        a "X-GNOME-Autostart-Delay" key in the desktop file
    - debian/patches/ubuntu/ubuntu_sessions.patch:
      + Add ubuntu session tweaks
    - debian/patches/ubuntu/remove_session_saving_from_gui.patch:
      + Add GNOME_SESSION_SAVE environment variable for people wanting to
        use the save session still, knowing that it can break your system
        if used unwisely
    - debian/patches/ubuntu/add_sessionmigration.patch:
      + launch session-migration if present at the start of the session.
        This sync tool runns different session migration scripts that can be
        provided in various desktop packages.
    - debian/patches/ubuntu/dbus_request_shutdown.patch:
      + Add "RequestShutdown" and "RequestReboot" DBus methods to allow
        other applications to shutdown or reboot the machine via the session
    - debian/patches/ubuntu/ignore_gsettings_region.patch:
      + Ignore the "region" gsettings value - users' setting of LC_*
        variables saved in ~/.pam_environment.
    - debian/patches/revert_remove_gnome_session_properties.patch:
      + Don't merge translations into gnome-session-properties.desktop
    - debian/ubuntu-settings-migrate-to-defaults.18.10.1.py:
      + Migrate users using old default ubuntu-settings to current ones

  * control: Switch from Breaks old gnome-shell to Depends new one.  I think
    this more correctly expresses what we want here. Our systemd session
    definitions refer to org.gnome.Shell.target which was introduced in
    3.37.91. We should ensure that this is on the system. Similarly for the
    various org.gnome.SettingsDaemon units which were renamed in 3.37.0.
  * debian/control: Apply relationship changes from gnome-session to
