For us porters it would be nice to have at least one image with SF

I think SF is a crutch that at this point isn't actually helping porters
with bootstrapping of Ubuntu Touch.  Mir is better supported, and the
integration requirements for Mir vs. SF are largely the same -
so I don't see any reason that it makes sense for porters to bring up SF,
which has a lot more Android baggage to get in the way, instead of going
straight for Mir.

Yes, meanwhile I agree. Somewhere on the list I had read that making mir work might require a lot of porting, that's why SF seemed a reasonable first step. But seems that was exaggerated; mir is more or less working for me now. :)

Just got Ubuntu and Android booting and now the image is broken...
Yes, the image was broken because we're trying to be too clever in
supporting both Mir and SF.  If we dropped SF support entirely, this
particular breakage wouldn't have happened.

Well, the last one or two days converted me: SF didn't work and mir now (almost) works for my TF300T.
So yeah, probably a good idea to drop SF support.

Thanks, you are all doing a marvelous job!
