Plasma Active is a different user interface on top of things, not yet
packaged for Debian.

The underlying libs are shared with the rest of the workspace, so it is
"just" getting the last bits integrated and tested. But the debian kde
team is lacking manpower to also take that up. It is just ~3-4 source
packages and maybe enabling e.g. the okular tablet port in the okular

The Plasma Active upstream people are maintaining a Mer based reference
image for a couple of tablets.
