First, plasma-5.9.3 was imported into fedora rawhide. Then, based
on that work, we did an initial set of f25 builds in copr:

consider bringing plasma-5.9.x to official fedora updates (and will
be an upgrade path from using the plasma-5-unstable copr).

Enjoy, and let us know what breaks.
I spoke too soon.
After updating, I initially found no problems, but my whole system
"froze" several times later. I think it was related to powerdevil,
but I collected no information. I had to do a hard reset, powering
down to recover. Examining my journal, after rebooting, the log
messages just stopped at the point of failure and nothing was recorded
after that. I repeated the failure maybe three times, but each time
the system was completely unresponsive. The lack of any fan noise
indicates that the system was simply disabled for any interrupts, but
not executing or looping.
I also observed a slightly annoying problem in kmail. Using IMAP with
gmail, deleting a message from my inbox resulted in the same message
being fetched again. Apparently deleting the message was not
signaled to the IMAP server.
Anyway, I disabled the copr repository and did a dnf distro-sync to
downgrade back to plasma 5.8.6.
If you can think of anything I could have done to diagnose the
problem, let me know and I'll give it another go.
