Patches have been landed. What's missing still in KWin at the moment is support for multi-plane buffers since we assume one texture per window internally. This looks to me like a bigger rewrite and should go into a separate task.

Since direct scanout or sampling can be done interchangeable at any point in time send the formats + modifiers in both results (intersection).
Regarding our rendering APIs:
This makes only sense when using OpenGl/EGL, not with QPainter.
Some good overview on what we need to do is given here: https://www.x.org/wiki/Events/XDC2017/widawsky_fb_modifiers.pdf

Unlikely, Gnome's shell runs in-process with the compositor, they don't need any IPC for the same use case.
afaik gnome already has this, do they have some sort of protocol there?

mart/plasmavirtualdesktop branch on kwayland, i started the xml file for it, I'm trying to document it as well, to see if i'm getting the protocol right

As I mentioned to @Kanedias on IRC, there is also remote desktop portal which I proposed as a GSoC task, see https://community.kde.org/GSoC/2018/Ideas#Project:_Remote_desktop_portal.

I use a 33 point custom curve loaded via XF86VidModeSetGammaRamp, not a single value. Today's displays need some 'S' shaped curve, but unfortunately needs fine tuning for each display.
Hard requirements have been met by the two patches. Soft requirement was dropped, something to look into in the future.
Can the remote access protocol be extended in this way? It would make sense by its name to facilitate remote input support here as well.
This finally is ready to proceed, thanks everybody. D10965 to go. I'll begin working on KRfb integration with pipewire stream this week.
We should think about input support as now remote sessions are limited to view-only.

Xdg-desktop-portal-kde does it on its own, same way like kwrr (I actually took that part from kwrr).
Thanks for the answers. Sounds fine to me. Not sure if we only want to support the portals stuff and by that indirectly make it a standard in a broader sense, but if it works fine for everybody and there are no other solutions available, I'm certainly not against it.
