Where exactly was this discussed and announced?

What exactly will replace src/common, when, and how exactly will it work?

If this is actually so, I would just like to point out that this sort of

source trees including NetBSD and also locally added files, where they
have tried to follow the current organization of the NetBSD tree when
making local additions.
