2. systemd-shim (limited support for some of the systemd apis)
-development halted

systemd-shim is not an reimplementation of logind, its a wrapper to
the use of systemd logind and a few other
components without requiring systemd init. It certainly provides enough
for a full GNOME support up to 3.14 and
probably 3.16, we were using it in Ubuntu GNOME up until the recent
to systemd init, and it worked well.

I don't know where you heard development is halted, Canonical will 
need to keep maintaining it so long as they still have
upstart in the archives.

I based the comment on the fact that the last commit to
was Dec-14, but maybe Ubuntu uses a different git repo?

That notwithstanding, I'm trying to make 3.16.x work and the only way
forward would seem to be to
debug the "gnome-shell.desktop failed to register" error, hence the
request for help :)


Check out Devuan: supposed to be a Debian derivative without systemd. So
far it's vaporware, but they might be able to assist in this regard. I
wouldn't expect the Gnome Development community to be the place to ask.
Devuan has a website:
