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.
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.
