Jeroen, thanks for your message.
Looks like we are still working on merging the "Make abstract Config
class truly implementation-agnostic" changeset.
We came out of the Architecture Summit with a lot of momentum for
replacing our direct use of global variables throughout the system. We
agreed on "Basic hygiene of taking what's already being used (JSON
configuration like EventLogging, Zero, and UploadWizard campaigns) and
separating into separate extension or integrating into Core." But we
don't really have a clear design document/discussion of the current path
forward, as far as I know.
We've also talked about the "Graphical configuration interface" RfC
(formerly "Configuration database 2") a little bit but could use a
lot more speccing out of requirements.
