OK, since I'm getting such great updates on the state of the wisp
world, far more in a few days than I've had in 10 years... and btw, no
need to leap on dr science guy research questions like mine if you
have like, towers flooding or the phone ringing off the hook....

What routing protocols are in use nowadays? BGP, yes, and it seems
ospf is popular?

How about ISIS?

I figure babel has zero traction or awareness despite being mandated
by the ietf homenet working group.

Secondly, do you rely on BGP based on the edge router or use it in
software (frr? quagga? bird?). Using RPKI? Push FIBs anywhere? (route
666 in particular)

Similar question related to the IGP protocol in use, where do you rely
on it, vs all the tunnels you have, on what kinds of hardware?

I note that robert at some point, somewhere, pointed out how fq_codel
saved his bacon when there was a major routing mishap (as there is no
congestion control in ospf), and I'd like to hear more of that story.

BATMAN has been mentioned. There's other wireless protocols I've liked
- OLSR for example...

Nobody knows what lies underneath many consumer wireless meshes
although it looks like 802.11s is a starting point, none, so far as I
know interoperate across brands.
