Hello from Guifi.net - Catalonia.
People from a rural hacklab in Itatiaia (Brasil) are going to suporpt a intensive project for start to develop a free, open and neutral network in rural areas in Brasil.
1st part of project start September 5th until 20th. We're going to research social, economical and technological reality in rural areas in Brasil, to make some links in this area and to develop free software for their needs.
Of course I was thinking to do it with Libre-Mesh in cheap routers and I hope some of you find this project interesting to come to work on it together. They pay travels, food and host for a little team (3-4 people).
I can not to decide who (they do it), but they tell me that if I know about people that have the profile that I contact them and say them that tomorrow 13th or 14th they are going to open the call to collaborators. So, you are the people with perfect profile :) They are going to choose first people that propose him or herself to the project.
At same time they are 3 or 4 other several projects about rural and tech's.
After this meeting we want to continue development of free networks in Brasil and we're going to work in to get more supporters in contact with "forumdainternet.cgi.br", "Tropixel" and "Saravea.net".
PD: Some of you can give me permissions to edit Libre-Mesh wiki? My username is "al". Thank you.

What do you think about this?
Could be useful for us? It can be executed to know if there are DHCP
servers (different to you) in a network interface.
root@qMp76:/tmp# dhcpdiscover -i br-lan
DHCP ok: Received 1 DHCPOFFER(s), max lease time = 3600 sec.
root@qMp76:/tmp# dhcpdiscover -i br-lan -b 172.30.22.1
DHCP offer comming from the banned addr 172.30.22.1, ignoring it
DHCP problem: No DHCPOFFERs were received.
Could be used for knowing if a network device is plugged to a WAN
modem or not.

As i mentioned some time ago, the #libre-mesh channel on freenode is
bridged to libre-mesh lobby on retroshare
Someone asked for the code but at that time it wasn't released yet, today
the autor informed me that he released the code under LGPL on github
have fun ;)
hello fine folks,
so, here we are with nico planning dates,
we are going to arrive to barcelona this friday 27 in the morning,
p4u, do you think we can meet before you leave (on sunday)? i.e. this
friday or saturday
we'll be staying at Can Masdeu those days so you're welcome to come,
or, we might go down to barcelona if needed
so that we can review together the progress so far
with isaac, i hope we'll be able to coincide after the summit, 5/oct in
really happy to see you soon!!
Some people from ACM  have proposed to me to do a talk about something I
do/like about networking at Computer Science Department of UPM, i was
thinking on talking about libre-mesh so i can talk also about human aspect
of netowrking and not only about tecnical stuff
what do you think about that ?
Hello from Brasil. I'm working on Libre-mesh network deployment here for two weeks. I need resources as map, code, firmware,... Now all is down. Please can you give up again? Maybe we can make a on-line backup server in order to have high availability and not to depend just for one server.
We can have a redmine/nginx stable and the other one for testing.
(I said that because we had two downs just last month, please, I'm a little bit worried).
Thanks to help of people on retroshare we achieved to have #libre-mesh on
freenode bridged with libre-mesh on RetroShare so now we can chat on bot
networks with all, the only glitch is that people on one network will not see
people on the other but just on the list, the messages will be relayed by the
Bridge nick that will report real author as part of the message
This is an important step, RetroShare is a P2P secure and encripted netwok, so
there is no need for servers, it is just like mesh but on layer 7 and it is
particular important because it will encourage local traffic instead of remote
one, and decentralization that is all good for our fredom networks :D
Also ipv6 for retroshare is in plan for 0.6 version ( we are at end of 0.5.x
series ;) so we will have it soon )
And i am developing the GUI for androis so we will have scure messaging on
phone too ( VoIP is in plan we already have some working plugin prototype so
soon secure call too :D )
