This morning we (Keith, Ian) met with an assortment of the NET-SNMP developers / contributors (primarily Bart Van Assche) to discuss how we could best help the project. The meeting went well, at least form our perspective.


The pain points we identified were:

* bug mountain

* help users on the mailing list

* patch / MR handling process

* move out of SourceForge

* clean up headers in /include/net-snmp/system/ which are a mess and have import loops

* #ifdef hell / too many supported configurations

Keith is currently focused on streamlining the process of handling merge requests, which will make it easier to handle the bug mountain. I will probably be focusing on the headers for now in hopes that it will make other processes easier as well. We can help on the repo move whenever y'all are ready to pull the trigger on that.
