Default A plan to provide some patch to improve package configuration upgrades (was: Proposal to improve package configuration upgrades)

ok. Here's the plan:

- Identify a "candidate" package to add (as a patch) an upgrade
feature based on Config::Model.
- Then, I'll patch this source package to use Config::Model during
upgrade and test it at home
- Then, I'll send the patch for review and comments

Now, I need some help to identify the package I'll will work on.

This package should have a configuration not too complex and its
configuration definition should not move too fast. So this excludes
exim, sendmail and xorg.

So, do you have a configuration peeve package that fit the criteria
above and bothered you during upgrades ?

Does anyone want to participate actively to improve upgrade with
Config::Model ? (yes, this is a call for help :-) )

All the best
