Hi from Barcelona Hacklab.
In order to mount new nodes with Libremesh in places where exist
networks with qMp and Libremesh we tested with two Nanostation M5 with
same revision of BMX6:
this is the default BMX6 in each stable release (Libremesh stable and
qMp Clereance 3.2.1)
For replicate the issue:
Working on same test channel (48) with same VLAN (default qMp 12) we got
good link and we can see BMX6 routes from each other, but we can't ping
Let's organize a couple of meetings for getting this 17.02 release done!
I suggest to meet one weekend as soon as possible and another one in April.
Here you are the website for expressing your availability (this time the
results will be hidden, for the sake of participants' privacy):
The venue will be in Valldoreix (Bcn), not yet exactly defined.

This is normal (maybe there should be a check and not an error? Should
be easy to fix, anyone?) in English (for pasting output for debug
please use English, prepend "LANG=C " at the beginning of the command
line for changing language) I get:
cp: cannot stat 'targets/ar71xx.kernel': No such file or directory
this means that the profile you're using doesn't have any specific
configuration for kernel.
For example ar71xx-mini does have one.

There's no such profile I think... You can use
for listing the profiles, you may use the profile "generic".
The image for APE522ii should be built for the target you selected.

Uh! There's no branch "17.02" in lime-packages, at a certain point
(now?) we will need to create that first (devs...?) and then change
Now we can start working on LibreMesh 17.03 :D

For a detailed list of changes since 17.01.0-rc2 refer to
For a complete list of changes since the start of the LEDE project, see
* Available space on devices with only 4MB flash is very low,
users requiring extra packages might want to consider using the
image builder to repack custom images
* The available memory on devices with 32MB RAM might be too low to
reliably run opkg or sysupgrade operations, especially in
conjunction with LuCI
* Any outstanding issues reported at https://bugs.lede-project.org/

In lime-users mailing list Nicolas asked how to change the IPv4 DHCP
server range in LiMe.
I realized that there's no way to do it. Anygw configures dnsmasq to
use the whole broadcast domain as DHCP range.
Here is where this happens:
In theory there should be no problem as there should be a check for
the availability of the IP (by the DHCP server or client?), anyway I
think we should fix this.
Should we add a new option in /etc/config/lime?
Or use the values from /etc/config/dhcp?

I thin the LiMe network architecture is a topic that may fit into a research paper. Maybe this workshop would be a nice place to send it.
Is there someone here able working on the academa and able to participate on this? I might participate but not as a first author.

Assumpte: [Battlemesh] A call for papers on DIY networking
for those of you that work in (conjunction with) the academia,
but also for those that can afford a scientific conference, there
is this nice workshop we are setting up, the week right after
The theme of the workshop is exactly what we do in community networks,
so, along technical papers we also welcome non strictly technical
contributions to understand what is needed to empower people
to make "the Internet": experiences, architectures, incentives, governance,
success or failure cases are very useful, because normally these things
remain under the surface.
The full CFP is below, and the website of the main conference is here
with all the details: http://networking.ifip.org/2017/
I hope to see papers coming from some of the people of the BM community.

CALL FOR PAPERS
IFIP Networking 2017 Interdisciplinary Workshop on DIY and Community
Place: Stockholm, Sweden
Date: June 12, 2017
Abstract submission: March 20, 2017
Full paper: March 30, 2017
Notification of acceptance: April 10, 2017
Camera-ready papers due: April 27, 2017
DIY networking Workshop: June 12, 2017
This workshop is a joint venture of three EU Horizon2020 projects, MAZI,
netCommons, and RIFE, in an effort to join forces around the design and
use of DIY and community networking technologies for the common good,
using a highly interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach. With
DIY and community networking we refer to a diverse set of networking
technologies that range from large-scale community networks to small
scale wireless installations supporting local applications accessible
only to those residing in the coverage area of the network. DIY and
community networking represent two frontier research themes that can
open new and exciting research and application areas. On the one hand,
the locality of DIY networks enables the design of hybrid spaces and
places for social sustainability, collective awareness, and
conviviality. On the other hand, community networking is one of the most
promising approach to overcome digital divide.
What bridges these two themes is the idea that networks are not only a
way to "access the Internet", but they are a way to connect people, and
people make "the Internet". This workshop will contribute to investigate
the way that local applications can influence the creation and the
governance of community networks, and how community networks can
stimulate the creation of novel local applications.
DIY and community networks are embedded with the local social
environment where they grow, so their study cannot be separated from the
understanding of their societal stimuli and societal impact. For this
reason the workshop will be highly interdisciplinary aiming to bridge
the communication gap between those that build the technology (computer
scientists, engineers, and hackers) and those that understand better the
complex urban environment where this technology will be deployed (social
and political scientists, urban planners, and designers). More
specifically, people working on applications and uses of ICT are not
always aware of the capabilities of technology for building local
communication networks, on the other hand, scientists in the field of
networking are often indifferent on the actual use and social
implications of the technical solutions they design. We believe that we
are currently in a moment in history when it is particularly important
to bridge this gap between engineering and social sciences, to create an
alternative to the current trend of centralization of resources and
control that is taking place at a global scale on the Internet.
Some of the themes that we want to be central in the workshop are:
- Technical contributions that render DIY networking technology easier
to understand and use by for less technically savvy people
- Theoretical contributions that can facilitate the understanding of the
various inherent trade-offs in the design of DIY networks and the
translation of engineering decisions to constraints and requirements for
applications developers and vice versa.
- The integration of community networking with DIY applications, models
of deployment, experiences of success and failure for this combination.
- The exploration of the trade-off between Internet access networks and
local networks for experimenters, hackers and citizens.
- The way DIY and community networks can be placed in the frame of other
horizontal and bottom-up experiences, such as Peer Production movements.
- The links and interrelations between DIY and community networking in
the frame of the models for alternative Internets, such as peer-to-peer
networking, overlay networks, blockchain technologies etc.
- Revisit key engineering questions, such as routing protocols, energy
consumption, automation, resiliency in light of the possible practical
uses of DIY networking technologies.
For the special interdisciplinary session we welcome the following types
- Demos of working prototypes of DIY networking applications or systems
- Posters or design mock-ups of imaginary applications
- Short tutorials on important concepts that can facilitate
- Other alternative formats like interviews, testimonies, artistic
