ranging from packaging formats for QML and native mobile apps to the QML 
components API[1] to further work on status notifiers / app indicators there is 
tons of intersection.

furthermore, a lot of the functionality in kdelibs, particularly once teased 
out into discrete modules, would be very welcome by developers. easy example: 
karchive .. is there yet another Qt5 library that provides such a nice API to 
dealing with compressed file archives?

there is a lot of technical overlap, it just takes people to recognize the 
benefits of collaboration who sit down together and go through the big topics 
over the course of some period of time.

[1] if this wasn’t true, we would not have implemented a compatible units API 
in 4.11
