Last time when I sent an email to net@ for comments, I
received only limited feedback.
The New ARP code in my home directory on FreeFall and was
lasted updated on June-8-2007. It was based on then
CURRENT (7.0) and was tested to be working fine at
that time. A bit more work would be necessary in locking
though. I asked for code review and folks to play
with it. Again, the feedback was really scant.
The code is accessible at
The question I asked then was "should I move forward?"
I'd be more that happy to resume and be done with it.
