and with 0.86, and 0.88, ... ;) I know that Martin Dengler, Chris, Sebastian and Paul are working on some of what is required in their free time, but lots of help is still required. I'm particularly concerned about the kernel bits that aren't upstreamed yet. Also, pushing the mesh stuff into NM upstream should be quite low hanging fruit, anybody is willing to take this task? Sjoerd has a patch that is almost approved by Dan Williams, shouldn't take much finishing this up. In the meantime, if deployers of 0.82 like Paraguay, Uruguay, Afghanistan and Nepal wish to join forces and do a 8.2.2 build with the biggest deficiencies fixed, it may benefit a lot without much fuss being involved.
