KDE Developers Planning on Rebasing Plasma Mobile on AOSP or Lineage OS

If you haven’t monitored KDE’s Plasma Mobile scene lately, it switched to a CyanogenMod base in May this year from Ubuntu Touch, which made use of the Android Hardware Abstraction Layer by running Google’s Android mobile operating system inside an LXC (Linux Containers) container. And it now looks like that’s about to change again, unfortunately, as the CyanogenMod project, a highly popular open-source operating system for smartphones and tablet computers, was discontinued during Christmas holidays. The Lineage OS fork was already announced, but there’s always AOSP (Android Open Source Project).
