Just for everyone: Plasma 5.19 cannot be tested in complete at the 
moment as some packages are going through NEW queue and thus need to 
acknowledged manually by FTP masters.

To me this has been clear from what Norbert wrote and I see to Marc as 
well. But to make sure its really clear, here you have it.

That said, I installed some packages from experimental already. And they 
are working here. However, with anything in experimental, if it breaks, 
you get to keep the pieces. I won't share the packages names for now, if 
you like to be adventurous and are experienced enough I am sure you find 
out yourself.
