New Mir PPAs for Ubuntu

We have three PPAs for Mir, all three will builds for the supported Ubuntu series (currently 16.04 LTS “Xenial”, 18.04LTS “Bionic”, 19.04 “Disco” and 19.10 “Eoan”) as well as the current development (20.04 “Focal”).

The “Release Candidate” PPA contains the release candidate code of Mir. sudo add-apt-repository --update ppa:mir-team/rc
The “Latest Integration Build” PPA contains the latest development code of Mir built after each pull request lands. sudo add-apt-repository --update ppa:mir-team/dev
