yes we are preparing to move to 16.04 ASAP. So for vivid we will not
need new version of Mir probably :)

I am not on this team though, so I can get you in touch with the right
people if you like. Any advice on what will speedup our transition of
the core OS to 16.04 will be appreciated.

thx Florian
