I think Robert's list is a superset. Technically you only need two of
them, in theory:
4. https://github.com/RAOF/mesa branch egl-platform-mir
That's enough to run a basic server and native client, in a VT.
But Robert's list below is the full set of projects the Mir team is
looking after. Canonical also has other Mir-related projects not on the
list, such as the Qt Unity8 work.
