Scripting/Extensions BoF at Akademy?

Greetings all,

I'd like to ask if there is any interest of having a BoF around the topic of 
script language based extensions for KDE applications.

Some applications already offer that, e.g. Kate, and Plasma is even designed 
around that idea.

But currently there seems to be quite some infrastructure implemented multiple 
times, e.g. a "require" or "include" mechanism for QtScript.

My goal for the BoF would be to see which functional blocks we have spread 
across KDE software, if we could identify bits that can be upstreamed and bits 
that would be nice in a KScriptAddon framework.

One thing for the latter could be support for packages, probably based on 
Plasma packages, as a nice and common way of making application extensions 
distributable including assets and translations.
