Hi all and thank you for working on this.

Back in 2018 I had Qt 5.9 and Qt 5.11 builds for SFOS (they are not
available anymore because of changes in OBS repos), but the builds
were not usable because the of the same issues — wayland and virtual
keyboard. As far as I understood, a compositor with newer wayland
protocol is needed to support minimize and switching back to full
screen (the applications were able to start, but I couldn't open them
again after minimize).

This is linked to the ancient version of QtWayland, even not 5.6, but still 5.4 ! They already have a 5.9 branch in SailfishOS git (https://git.sailfishos.org/mer-core/qtwayland/tree/mer-5.9), but we need to wait for Jolla to make the Qt switch. I don't think it's something community can change on device... I hope I can be proven wrong though.
