Ubuntu Unity Becoming An Official Flavor With 22.10 Release

While it's been long since Canonical dropped and Unity take place as the official desktop environment of Ubuntu

some within the open-source community have still been keeping up with it and running an unofficial Ubuntu Unity flavor of the distribution

Presently with the following month's Ubuntu 22.10 release, Ubuntu Unity will be an official flavor/spin.

This week the voting happened and Ubuntu Unity will become a recognized flavor of Ubuntu beginning with next month's 22.10 release.

The Ubuntu Unity flavor is essentially Ubuntu but adding in the Unity packages by default for that desktop

And yes some extra packages like Nemo, Pluma, Synaptic, and a few other extra packages over what is found by default in Ubuntu. 

As if now Ubuntu Unity uses a slightly newer version (7.5 vs. 7.6) version of Unity than what is currently in the Ubuntu universe archive.

There is the proposal for officially recognizing this downstream distros for Ubuntu 22.10 alongside the likes of Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu, and other flavors.
