Xubuntu team: No Mir for 13.10

The Xubuntu team has decided today that Xubuntu 13.10 will not have Mir installed by default. The decision was based on the testing and evaluation Xubuntu team did with Mir before.

On behalf of the whole Xubuntu team, I want to thank the Mir developers for being closely in touch with the team as well as helping with any problems we had. I also want to thank everybody who tested Mir with Xubuntu – all feedback was important. Thank you!

The full logs and the minutes for the community meeting along with the decisive votes can be found at the Xubuntu wiki: Xubuntu community meeting, Aug 22.

    Thanks for the well executed testing campaign and working with the Mir team, Pasi. It was wonderful to see XMir get exercised by the Xubuntu community and while I think we will have the remaining issues fixed ready for 13.10, we understand that you needed to pull the trigger on a decision. Many thanks.
