When I initiated that effort after those initial proposals of mine I
came pretty fast to the conclusion that in order to be able to do that
we needed to have it mandatory for packagers/maintainers to submit at
least a minimum debugging information for new components which we QA (
or more me at the time ) could create proper debugging pages around
I even went to the lengths to request that from Fesco/FPC which settled
on making it "optional" for packagers to do so.
Needless to say now 6000+ components later we have no more how to debug
or how to test pages then we did back then which makes it pretty evident
that unless fesco/fpc make it mandatory you will be chasing your tail
and other maintainers for a long time before it's completed.
I appraise your efforts in taking up the torch where I left it and my
advice to you is start with the critical path packages then work your
way up from there.
