I want to suggest something different,

1) Create two different groups named plasma-workspace and
plasma-desktop like frameworks
2) Split out every component into individual repos
3) Assign repos to the related group.


1) Easy to assign maintainer to individual component.
2) If we split only some repos, we can not mark it as part of
workspace but this way we can do it.
3) More, may be?

That's my humble suggestion. :)
