Goodbye Ubuntu Touch


Ha ha, this morning I was considering installing Ubuntu Touch on my Nexus 5, as there is an image for it, that is, apparently, mostly working, except for bluetooth.
But, then ran across Mark Shuttleworth's recent announcement:

Now Ubuntu is going back to Gnome instead of Unity, and heading for Wayland instead of Mir!!!

Wow. Leaves me wondering though, will Ubuntu Touch actually die, or will the community take it up as an independent project?
There is some discussion about this here:
