Hartmut did work on KDE Plasma in the past.  You may find some of his
packages here:

I don't think anyone else have attempted it, so your help is very

You may find the KDE updater useful before you begin packaging new

  ./pre-inst-env guix refresh -t kde -u

...that command will update the package versions and hashes in your
local repository with the latest ones found on the KDE mirrors.  It
requires a local Guix checkout as described in the manual under
"Building from git".  Feel free to send patches as you go along.

Hope this helps, and welcome to Guix!
