Following the previous discussion concerning this topic:



Based on the latest information, external docks can use the same 
interface plasmashell does in order to achieve this goal. But based on 
the discussions I am not persuaded that all the people involved have 
something concrete and specific for the future. Investing time and 
commitment in something that will die soon in the future is not the best 
way to proceed in my opinion.

What as a Latte developer would like to know is if this is considered a 
feasible use case for the plasma wayland branch and how the plasma 
community would like to handle it.

Any opinions of course are respectful, even if that means that the 
plasma community respond with a no or that this isnt the proper time to 
conclude. It is much better in my opinion than leave this topic fluid 
and invest development time in something that doesnt have future.

with regards,


ps. if this is a matter of not enough manpower, both developers (me and 
audoban) are considering ourselves part of the kde community and we 
would like to interfere more in plasma development. So we can help and 
take over tasks from this topic with guidance from the plasma devs.
