In caso qualcuno volesse cimentarsi con Github e contribuire allo
sviluppo di LibreMesh, abbiamo etichettato tutte le segnalazioni e
richieste che siano facili da risolvere e implementare (quickfix),
eccole qua :D

del firmware vero e proprio e dei suoi strumenti:

dell'aiutante di compilazione lime-sdk:

del contenuto del nostro sito http://libremesh.org/

La discussione la facciamo direttamente su Github (preferibilmente in
inglese) o sulla mailing list lime-users (anche in italiano):
