in other words:
when F21 goes EOL i have to suck lose nearly anything which can be called my
workflow just because Fedora again like the KDE3->KDE4 transition way too
early pushed KDE5 and all that "the transition to KDE5 will not be the same
tradegy as with Fedora 9" is just wishful thinking, not calling it a lie
Plasma 5 was released more than one year ago - so I'd not say it was
too early, Fedora even wasn't the first distribution that adopted
Plasma 5. And yes, unfortunately we lost some old Plasmoids where
theirs authors lost interest in it and did not rewrite it for Plasma 5
in that one year... I retired a few packages. But these were
unmaintained for years.
I'm not saying it was completely flawless transition but it was more
or less new Plasma and mix of KDE 4 and KF5 apps with common Breeze
theming and at the point when Fedora switched, it was in a pretty good
shape. I was one of the most conservative guy from KDE SIG when we
planned the transition and I'm happy Plasma 5 user now (exception are
dual head issues).
The best thing you can do at the moment is to approach Lancelot menu
upstream and ask what's the porting status (or even if there are any
plans to do so).
