We still working on one patch to be send upsteam, so everybody in the freifunk-community need this in their setup:

Would be nice if you can add it permanently until we manage to fix it upstream, like the decrease maximum fragment size patch. :)

Best regards

Hi t-8ch,

just found out that the patch[1] mentioned a while ago is still not applied at upstream, so batman-adv does still break packets while forwarding when the mtu differs.

Would be nice if you include it again :)


Best Regards

Hi t-8ch,

I understand you, but it wasn't my intention to let you include custom-patches. All patches mentioned has already be merged upstream and are backported. The are all backported for stability or bugfix reasons, and should be only necessary until 2015.2 is released.

If you still want to keep the patchset as small as possible, I'd like to select some very critical ones.

Thanks for your fast response!

Hi Ruben,

those look mostly like features and new default settings to me.
To be honest I'd like to keep this package as vanilla as possible (If some patches are critical bugfixes for vanilla batmand-adv, please let me know!)
I propose to create a new package batmand-adv-{openwrt,freifunk,preview,...}
If you want you can create/maintain this package or I make a split package out of this package.
I am also happy to create a postinst message pointing users to the new package.

There are some patches which are still very important, but doesn't met the 2015.1 release... can you please add them as well?
