    There is a recent Wired article where it's written The open source movement runs on the heroic efforts of not enough people doing too much work. They need help.
    Which part of "at least reporting bugs (which is on that list) doesn't work" didn't you understand?
    The only item that's true in there is if you can and will code fixes yourself. Otherwise, you'll get the "we don't have a priority list, we're understaffed, everyone works on whatever they feel like" response.

        The part that connects "you need to wait" to the list of ways in which you can supposedly contribute that you also posted.

          I mean, there are other ways. For example, Edward Snowden recently asked for donations to the EFF (https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/1...-broken-system), for Libreoffice you can use [crowdfunding](https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Crowdfunding) to setup a bug bounty, etc.

            I found that KDE Wayland fractional scaling was a bust for many apps which just resulted in blurry windows/font, however changing the font DPI to 144 seemed to work better. (4k)

            The other annoying immediate issue with Wayland under Plasma5 was desktop click areas are a bit broken for task manager icons, for example Skype would often open if you click top-left of screen or over the start/apps icon, even tho its no where near that part of the screen.

            I'd be surprised if Wayland can be fixed up with another year of development, it feels VERY alpha build still!

              Thanks, that looks a lot better. Until a couple of hours in when kwin crashed trying to open a second browser window.

                What I wrote was not entirely accurate. It should be fractions of 96 dpi e.g. 120, 144, 168, 192 to be sharpest.
