Yes, one very first stab in debian-devel aroundin February . I was
encouraged by Zach to write some code. I felt that the code alone would
not be enough so I created the wiki page.
I sent a first request for comment of the first draft of the wiki page
in April to debian-perl. Thanks to the comment from Jonas Smedegaard,
this led to some clarification of the specification of a configuration
model and the creation of dh_config_model_upgrade.
Then GSoC happened. Being GSoC mentor did slow down work on
Config::Model and package config upgrade. ;-)
