Bug Description

[Availability]
 * Available in universe

[Rationale]
 * This package is required as the basis for making the Unity 8 shell available as an alternate login session in Ubuntu

[Security]
 * No known security issues at this time. This package has been ACKed by the security team in advance.

[Quality assurance]
 * This package is effectively a metapackage with some lightdm configuration files. Functional testing is a documented manual process with simple (you can log in or not) results.

[Dependencies]
 * mir-graphics-drivers-desktop is in universe, but its source mir is already in main
 * policykit-unity8 binary and source package is in universe, but a request to file a MIR bug has been sent out
 * qtmir-desktop binary and source package is in universe [bug #1612358]
 * qtubuntu-desktop binary and source package is in universe [bug #1612346]
 * unity-system-compositor binary and source package is in universe [bug #1613601]
 * unity8 binary and source package is in universe [bug #1613638]
 * url-dispatcher is in universe, but its source url-dispatcher is already in main
 * address-book-app binary and source package is in universe, but can be demoted from 'recommends' to 'suggests'
 * camera-app binary and source package is in universe, but can be demoted from 'recommends' to 'suggests'
 * gallery-app binary and source package is in universe, but can be demoted from 'recommends' to 'suggests'
 * indicator-transfer binary and source package is in universe, but can be demoted from 'recommends' to 'suggests'
 * mediaplayer-app binary and source package is in universe, but can be demoted from 'recommends' to 'suggests'
 * unity-scope-click binary and source package is in universe, but a merge proposal to remove it as a dependency is pending

[Standards compliance]
 * This package uses autotools. It has no translatable strings other than the (trade mark) "Unity8" presented as a selection at login time, which should not need translation.

[Maintenance]
 * This package is maintained by Canonical and has been available through the archives since 2013 with some media promotion for early adopters.

Blockers:
- Needs a team bug subscriber. I see it has one for the owning team... But would any on the current list of package-subscribers be a better fit?
http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-archive/ubuntu-archive-tools/trunk/view/head:/package-subscribers#L107

Non blocking note:
- unity8-desktop-session-mir should have "Section: oldlibs" so that package tools know it's obsolete.
- I see there are plenty of bugs, but aren't seemingly specific to this package, just to the experience in general.

the phablet team has been subscribed, was that all was needed for the MIR now?

Yeah. From a MIR (not FFe) perspective, this is good now.

The MIR has been acked, re-using the bug for the FFe since the goal is to have that session on the iso for 16.10

The MIR work is being tracked in that trello board

This is fine also for FFe, since the packages are all already in the archive and we're only changing including them on the image (and not the default session).

I've seeded unity8-desktop-session.

It's in universe, so this should cause component-mismatches to tell us what needs doing.

After it's promoted, anyone can regenerate the metapackage and upload, to close this bug.
