If you want to do that the PPA package should ship an Apport hook
which changes the bug DB, to stop the "not an Ubuntu pkg" check.

If the MIR team actually wants PPA package reports against the Ubuntu
project, the hook can simply do

report['CrashDB'] = 'ubuntu'

If it wants reports go to some LP project only if the package comes
from a PPA, you can do something like

if not apport.packaging.is_distro_package('unity-system-compositor'):
report['CrashDB'] = '{"impl": "launchpad", "project": "lp-project-name"}'

See /usr/share/doc/apport/package-hooks.txt.gz for details.
