So much +1.
I'm really sad to see more fragmentation in the DE space instead of finding
people investing their time helping existing projects, even more so if there's
one aiming for the same goal under the KDE umbrella.
You're free to work on whatever you like to of course, but to me this sounds
like wasted effort. Your good incentives would be better spent with joining up
with others aiming for the same (LxQt for instance).
Hate to be the party pooper here, but I'm just not sure this kind of
fragmentation helps KDE in the long-term, where we really have a hard time
finding contributors for the majority of our *existing* projects.
