The Budgie desktop environment began its life as a part of the larger Solus distribution. However, as Budgie's popularity grew, it was spun off as an independent project. This made Budgie a more distro-neutral project, open to contributions from other Linux distributions. Budgie is now returning to its original home, under the care of the Solus project. An update to Budgie's README file states: "This decision has been made after a long time having Budgie Desktop being a separate project, which to this date has only repeatedly harmed the Budgie Desktop project due to other projects specifically looking to add vendor specific value-add and ensuring it is never upstream within this project. As such the project is now officially back under the stewardship of Solus (original authors) and will be developed with our goals in mind, as it once was. It should also be observed that Budgie has been an incredibly quiet project for almost the entire duration of the project being split out from Solus. This will now be remedied as we merge back into Solus, and all previous decisions will now be re-evaluated (Qt? Wayland? GTK+4? etc)."
