That attempt is on the ocsp2 branch at:

I don't remember how far it was gone, or whether it can apply on
master, but I remember I didn't follow up because there were no other
implementations of it, nor any plans for it. I can see it is still
open at NSS and openssl. However, with the track OCSP stapling is
taking, this will become something required in the future. So if there
is someone to push for it and creates the required tooling (for an
admin to agreegate ocsp responses) I'm all for it to include it.
