But given that the async scrolling capability is something we plan to add support for in the WPE and GTK ports, I'd appreciate some input about the scope and the timeframe of your work and possibility of sharing as much of the implementation as possible between different ports.

I’m hitting Nicosia compile issues again (https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=208282) and the last Nicosia-related commit was on October 3.

Does Nicosia qualify as a “science project” in the sense listed at https://webkit.org/project/ <https://webkit.org/project/> . Googling for Nicosia finds no technology-related hits on the first page.
