Many users, like myself, believe GNOME Shell to be a very powerful DE, but one that can be feel a bit unfriendly out of the box and while you can configure it more to your liking or even extend its functionality notably through extensions, sifting through the thousands of extensions to find the one that adds that feature or configuration option you wanted, only to find that it's been deprecated and doesn't work on your Shell version or have it introduce its fair share of bugs, well that's just not the most pleasant of experience and probably the kind of stuff that makes options like Budgie so (deservedly) popular.
Ubuntu's solution to that problem has been to ship by default with a customized version of GNOME that adds a few commonly desired features and configuration options to the standard OOTB experience, while letting 'purists' install the stock Gnome-session if they so wish. And this is just my opinion, but while no drastic changes were introduced I personally can't even imagine myself using the stock GNOME after having tried Ubuntu's modified session. The stuff it adds just seems to make sense and even the littlest things end up adding a lot in my opinion.
Didier Roche's (an Ubuntu dev) blog had a series of posts in the weeks prior to Ubuntu Artful's release on the kind of stuff they modified, but a few examples would be stuff like AppIndicators properly moved to the panel by default with their drop drown menus adopting the Shell style and theme (which can be done through extensions, but had caused me a few headaches in the past), adding an option to enable volume-boost (to 153% for some reason (not that I'm complaining)) permanently (which is absolutely vital on a lot of laptops, and can be buggily enabled through extensions (like the works once every 3 boots kinda bug)) or adding an option to have the shutdown menu pop up when pressing the power button (which can't really be done on Stock GNOME, to my knowledge, and is really essential to my use case at least). There were also flashier, more talked-about added features like having the basic Ubuntu-Dock installed by default, but in my opinion the little things are what really made it worth it. The bigger stuff like the Dock were nice for new users, but I imagine most Linux users already know about or would soon find out about Dash-to-Dock which is basically the Ubuntu Dock on steroids.
So I was thinking that it would be a nice addition to the Solus GNOME UX to have a package similar (or a literal port of it) to the Ubuntu-session one available in the repos or even installed by default, depending on what the devs think would be best (if doing this is even an option at all). I realize that customizing the GNOME-Shell UX isn't your priority when Budgie is the default spin, but I'm making this suggestion in case the Ubuntu modifications could be easily ported to Solus GNOME, I don't really have the technical know-how to figure that out myself, but I couldn't come up with any reason why that wouldn't work either.
Anyway, thanks in advance for your answers and for the amazing work done on Solus both with Budgie and with the OS in general.
