SRU tracking bug for KDE's Plasma 5.12.9 LTS for bionic

Official release announcement by the KDE community:
https://www.kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.12.9.php

Complete changelog (excludes translation updates):
https://www.kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.12.8-5.12.9-changelog.php


This time due to the small upstream list of packages with bugfixes, I am cherry-picking only 6 sources to SRU.

kdeplasma-addons
ksysguard
kwin
milou
plasma-desktop
plasma-workspace

[Impact]

 * Without this update, general users who are not inclined or able to
add our backports/update ppa will not receive this bugfix release of the
Plasma 5.12 LTS series

 * Providing this bugfix release via the official update pocket in the
archive will ensure that the bugfixes here reach and benefit most of our
users. This is particularly important for a Kubuntu and Plasma LTS
release

[Test Case]

 * General tests:
  - Does plasma desktop start as normal with no apparent regressions over 5.12.8?
  - General workflow - testers should carry out their normal tasks, using the plasma features they normally do, and test common subsystems such as audio, settings changes, compositing, desktop affects, suspend etc.

 * Specific tests:
  - Check the changelog: https://www.kde.org/announcements/plasma-5.12.8-5.12.9-changelog.php
  - Identify items with front/user facing changes capable of specific testing. e.g. "[weather] Fix weather Notices tab not showing."
   - Test the 'fixed' functionality.

[Regression Potential]

 * These updates fix some obvious front facing issues, but may also include some underlying code fixes.
  - e.g. changes for compilation under Qt versions we do not ship yet, code optimizations and fixes with less obvious explanation of impact in the changelog,

 * Fixes for obvious and testable bugs and regressions can also
introduce unintended other regressions in either the feature/app being
fixed, or desktop components or subsystems that interact with it. So it
is important in these updates to consider:

 * General testing - does the desktop as a whole, and routine use of
such work as previously with no obvious regressions over the previous
release.

 * If there is say a fix for the audio applet to fix one issue, in
addition to fixing that issue, do the other common features of that app
still work as before, do the general audio settings still work?

[Other Info]

 * Packages not listed in the upstream changelog either have a 0-diff or
just translation updates. Those with translation updates have been
included in this SRU.
