[wayland-protocols] Status of Primary Selection Protocol

what is the status of integrating your "Primary Selection Protocol"
RFC-v1 patch into wayland-protocols upstream [1]?

The background is I was trying KDE Plasma/Wayland v5.12 on
Debian/buster AMD64 and am used to have support for
middle-mouse-button pasting (primary selection) in my graphical
environment (see errata-list in [2] and bug-report in [3])

As far as I have understood the KDE people wait for an upstream
solution whereas GNOME did its own implementation of primary selection
support [6].

What are your plans?

Thanks for your feedback in advance.

Kind regards,
