I have very concrete plans to bring KWin into the cloud: https://blog.martin-graesslin.com/blog/2015/10/september-update-for-plasmas-wayland-porting/

How does that fit with a vision for "great local GUI software"? Can I still do 
that? Is KDE still a welcoming community for KWin with such a vision? Do I 
have to move development somewhere else if I go for the cloud? These are 
question which automatically come up when I read that it's about "great local 
GUI software". Please clarify how that fits together.
