Re: New XMir in wily

I've moved all the old XMir bugs into the xorg-server source package
[1] and closed the old XMir Launchpad project. This means should you
need to file a bug against XMir just file against the xmir binary
package, i.e.:
$ ubuntu-bug xmir

Normal apport bug reports will go to the right place automatically.
