The kdeconnect package isn't part of any kde meta-package and I think it
should as it really nicely integrates my Android devices with my KDE
desktop and I therefor have installed it on my PC, laptop and all my
Android devices. As a matter of fact when I install a new device it is
one of the very first packages/apps I do install on that device.
On top of that, it is explicitly mentioned in the Plasma 5.8 LTS
announcement  and it is also featured in the video on that page.
Thus it is likely that users of KDE in Debian Stretch expect it to be
installed by default.
I would be fine if this bug was reassigned to kde-plasma-desktop, the
metapackage I normally use, or alternatively to kde-full, but I'll leave
that up to the maintainer. Or close it as 'wont-fix', but I had to at
least try to get it into a Debian KDE metapackage ;-)
