Please consider unblocking of planned upload of package mate-netbook.

+  [ Martin Wimpress ]
+  * debian/patches:
+    + Add 0001_respect_undecorate_setting.patch. Ensure mate-maximus
+      undecorates maximized windows only when the "undecorate" dconf
+      option is set. (Closes: #778816).

Once mate-netbook is installed most applications loose their window
decorations when maximized (expected behabiour of mate-maximus inside the
mate-netbook package). In dconf there is a setting that allows one to
disable this "undecorate" behaviour (i.e. make windows behave normally
(desktop-like) again when maximized.

However, this "undecorate" option in dconf has no effect for users
attempting to disable the undecorate feature, window decorations stay
lost until mate-netbook gets uninstalled. Impossible to configure
mate-maximus on a per-user basis or with a system-wide override file.

With the provided patch in the attached .debdiff, this issue is fixed.
