There are tons of those tickets, and most of them are about some design detail somewhere. I've looked a bit through the VDG task board, and from that I could not identify which changes you mean that are incompatible with a Plasma Layout Editing Mode.
So please, could you enlighten us? Thank you!
Here I am speaking mostly of the work that is being done in consolidating virtual desktops and activities, which will likely change the way that we run an "edit mode". So, for me, we should wait to tackle edit mode until we have other pieces of the desktop in place first. Otherwise, our designs might end up changing.
Ah, thanks for the clarification! Yes, that makes sense. Your previous comment sounded a bit as if an edit mode wouldn't make sense anymore due to these changes, Postponing edit mode design until architectural decisions lower in the stack are made does make perfect sense, of course.
