Very nice to hear that! Looking forward to see it working

With LibreMesh we're already there :)
(a stable firmware, tested by many nodes and communities, in different
continents) that can autoconfigure a mesh on layer3 using OLSR, OLSR2,
BABEL or BMX6 / BMX7 (chosen at binary preparation)
as well as a layer2 BATMAN-Adv

So, also in line with Juliusz and Henning, for this coming edition i'd
then propose to simply use LibreMesh for every protocol, so it's always
the same set of kernel, qc, bugs, etc :)

(i'd still be interested in a "showcase" of firmwares at least as a
side-activity, but we could discuss that in another thread.)

in january i can prepare binaries, flash them to a couple of routers,
and coordinate with protocol devs to let them ssh in, and confirm
everything looks good for them

if by end of january i haven't fullfilled my promise, then we have still
5 more months to come up with a better plan ;)
