There are different topics, there are already a couple of epics:


plus off the top of my head:

- implement missing protocols like pointer constraints/relative motion
(started working on it: qtwayland code should be in good shape, needs to
clarify how does qtgui changes work on other platforms)
- possibly a better API for WaylandOutput modes from QML
- allow to set frame margins for client-side decorations (this is related
to QWindow and xdg-shell, probably other platforms too)

There are also some notes from QtCS '19:
