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.

That is to vague, what are they *exactly* not condoning?


Well, my guess would be that if it'd be too much work to support just one 'fork' over the other dozens on the wayland path, then it's not worth the effort. If, given some miracle, mir would take off and become popular, then they just might reconsider later.
