Re: Ubuntu graphic stack roadmap update

Hi,

I am here on Ubuntu/precise AMD64 (WUBI installation) and wanted to
test the new "Ubuntu graphic stack" based on (X)Mir after being
inspired by a German article [1].

Is there somewhere an ISO-image around for easy testing?
Daily ones?

we are not doing daily images for Mir, but this might be a good idea when we get closer to the MIR for Mir. However, I don't know how involved the creation of an ISO is and thus can't make a commitment.
 
In [2] I see that saucy is minimum base and the PPA lists saucy and raring.
How easy/bad/impossible/brainfu**ed is backporting to precise?
( I can place required X components in an /opt/xorg path. Just thinking... )

Saucy is the main target and should be used for any type of evaluation, Raring is a lesser supported development platform (see https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/mir-devel/2013-June/000193.html)

There is no plan for backporting Mir to P at this point.

hth,
