I'm more than happy if someone picks up this work, as I'm lacking time
to complete.

I just added a *lot* of information to this repo, esp. the state of
packaging, etc.

* 10-TODO-….txt contain the status of my efforts (which might be
outdated) and
  a lot of snippets useful for building packages and making tests pass.

  Please at least skim through these files as they contain lots hof
hints and
  some gems :-)

  The most central of this is the "Status Unit-tests" in
  10-TODO-plasma.txt. This documents the status of building the packages
  required for plasma. I'm encouraging you to use this list to avoid getting
  lost :-)

* Proposed approach

  1. Make the packages listed in "Status Unit-tests" in
     10-TODO-plasma.txt. build and (most) tests pass. This list hopefully
     contains all package required for a minimal Plasma desktop service.

     I suggest using the plasma versions currently package on this branch to
     avoid introducing more issues.

  2. Build a system (see gnu/system/examples/plasma.tmpl and
     gnu/services/desktop.scm) which starts runs a small (or even minimal)
     Plasma desktop.

  3. Define two (maybe more) desktop-services:
     - plasma-minimal
     - plasma
     (- plasma-all-bells-and-wistels)

PanterX, hat hat a bounty on "kwin"
(, but no longer exists. Maybe you get
in touch with them. They promised to merge back when they secceed.

Last time I used `-t kde` for updating did not fetch all packages and
I'm afraid it still does not, see
