Upstream GNOME PPA

PPA description

This PPA contains minimally-patched versions of some key GNOME components (ie: only addressing necessary technical issues like the lack of systemd on Ubuntu). No UI changes are made vs. upstream. You should not attempt to use these packages with Unity as certain relevant features are missing -- install at your own risk.

If you are using this PPA then probably you will also want to use the excellent GNOME3 team PPA:
