I'm with you %100. As co-chair of 2 wgs and deeply involved in the yang modeling efforts going on here and externally - most of which is clearly related - I'm puzzled. Benoit, Juergen and I have also been running a yangathon - hackathon for yang models - for a year now at each meeting which seems like a good fit for an org wide hackathon. No one approached us for this either.
