X11, Window Managers Intel on Ubuntu's XMir:

We do not condone or support Canonical in the course of action they have chosen, and will not carry XMir patches upstream.

Ubuntu has to do virtually all its work on Xmir drivers by itself. No one else supports it.

Well, technically Intel is invested heavily in Wayland. Hah, nice use of the word "technically" ;)

Anyway, this only means that Canonical has a bit more work on their hands. It's basically people telling them something along the lines of "You want Mir instead of Wayland then make it work yourselves".
