Re: non-Unity flavours and Mir

I don't think any DE/WM other than E17, GNOME, KDE can get Wayland
support any time soon; probably never. Therefore, switching to Wayland
can potentially break these DE/WM also; nothing specific about Mir.

E17? Just asked Debian's pkg-e to pakcge E17 0.17; not a first
class-citizen in Debian/Ubuntu kingdom yet.

GNOME, well, the future is GNOME OS, period.

KDE, this one is interesting. The one even tries to support
proprietary OS. The same also claim their CI has very limited distro
coverage so they cannot support distro specific feature. Maybe we
replace Kwin with something else then problem solved (KDE run on
proprietary OS without Kwin)

I believe that there is nothing technically wrong with Mir or it is
fixable. If upstreams have political problems, what can we do?
