Afair, this required changing gnome-session. I left a comment in the gdm MR.
If the point is, to not switch the desktop session automatically on
upgrades, then the session files would have to be renamed (back again)
to gnome.desktop (Xorg) and gnome-wayland.desktop from gnome.desktop
(Wayland) and gnome-xorg.desktop.
At least this is how I remember the details from back then in 2016.
I haven't checked if the situation is still the same today.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
