A hackathon dedicated to the Babel wireless mesh routing protocol will

* Test interoperability between different implementations and different

* Basic tests inspired by the Wireless Battle Mesh ones
* Data collection, statistics and reproductibility of the experience
* Bug hunting (hopefully there aren't many)
