Wayland has been a great interest and effort to the KDE community as it aligns with its values and goals : security, lightweight and beauty. This goal will articulate in tracking down and fixing the issues that keeps our software from achieving feature parity with the venerable X Window system. Our focus will be our own community software, KWin, Plasma and Apps but will also be about helping the wider community to advance Wayland feature set. This is an ambitious goal, it cannot be a small team effort, we need a wider community to participate at different degrees. Documentation We have a few documentation pages to help with debugging and fixing bugs. https://community.kde.org/KWin/Wayland https://community.kde.org/Guidelines_and_HOWTOs/Wayland_Porting_Notes KDE community projects KWin and KWayland Work board is located at https://phabricator.kde.org/project/view/98/ Plasma Work board is located at https://phabricator.kde.org/project/view/99/ Apps KDE has many great applications and we want to make sure they work flawlessly under Wayland. We will be helping the apps contributors testing and fixing their wayland support. Upstream projects libinput Libinput as the input library for Wayland is a major dependency of Plasma and a few of our apps. We will probably need to work with upstream, to achieve our goal. Qt and QWayland We might encounter issues with Qt or QtWayland in which case we will work with the Qt company to fix them. SDDM SDDM as our main desktop manager, will need some contribution of our community.
