I would like to request review of xdg-desktop-portal-kde [1]. We would like to 
make it part of Plasma releases, see [2]. 

What is xdg-desktop-portal-kde:
It's a KDE implementation of Flatpak portals backend [3], currently with 
support of AppChooser, FileChooser, Notification and Print portals. 

One mentioned issue on plasma-devel mailing list was usage of Qt's private 
print API. This will most likely go away if I find out it's useless, otherwise 
I'll have to keep it as it's used to set CUPS properties which are not 
available to the outside world.
