We're looking at the feedback and generally discussing Mir on this weeks

There is more to it than just the things you mentioned that will decide
if we want Mir or not. If everything else seems to be fine, I'm sure we
can postpone the ultimate decision by a day or two and organize some
more testing for the said features, if they are actually landing on our
decision day. On the other, if we see Mir as generally lacking, I see no
reason to postpone the decision to any later date.
