Giulio has informed me that he won’t be able to continue as the maintainer of Qt Wayland. Thanks Giulio for your contribution!

Qt Wayland is currently listed as a single module on the wiki, but The qtwayland repository falls into two modules that share a bit of code and need to be reasonably well aligned to correctly support Qt specific protocol extensions:

- Qt Wayland Client, which includes the QPA plugin that is used by Qt applications running on Wayland

- Qt Wayland Compositor, with C++ and QML types developing of custom display servers

I’d like to nominate David Edmundson (davidedmundson at kde.org) as the maintainer of the Qt Wayland Client module, and Eskil Abrahamsen Blomfeld (Eskil.Abrahamsen-Blomfeldt at qt.io) as the maintainer of the Qt Wayland Compositor module. They both have a long track record of working on Qt Wayland [1] [2], and have been setting the direction of the module together with other contributors e.g. during respective sessions at Qt Contributors Summits. They have both agreed to take on the responsibility.
