- config: when parsing prefix, check zero bits
4
- config: try to unify expressions
5

    
6
- static: check validity of route destination?
7

    
8
- configure: default CFLAGS?
9

    
10
- filters: deletion of mandatory attributes?
11
- filters: user defined attributes?
12

    
13
- cli: show tables?
14
- cli: show where is routed given IP address?
15

    
16
- client: Ctrl-R eats one more enter
17
- client: paging?
18
- client: data losses on large dumps?
19

    
20
- table: ocassional core dumps in rt_prune()
21
- table: filtering of old routes during updates?
22
- table: do feeding by parts
23

    
24
- bgp: timing of updates?
25
- bgp: dump and get_route_info
26
- bgp: when protocol is down, don't print Idle state
27

    
28
- proto: Don't show repeated `Changed state to ...' messages if only internal states change
29

- iface: Don't complain about missing broadcast addresses.

Documentation
33
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
34
- write doctool
35
- write documentation :|

Globals
38
~~~~~~~
39
- right usage of DBG vs. debug
40
- kill preconfigs?
41
- check dump functions
42
- cleanup debugging calls
43
- logging and tracing; use appropriate log levels
44
- check incoming packets and log errors!!
45
- check log calls for trailing newlines and log levels followed by comma
46
- check if all protocols set proper packet priorities and TTL's.
47
- replace all NUM, IPA and expr tokens by constant filter expressions
48
- try compiling with -Wunused
49
- does everybody test return value of sk_open?
50
- doc: references to RFC's we did follow
51
- protocols: implement CLI hooks and per-procotol CLI commands
52
- protocols: implement reconfigure hook
53
- protocols: use locking
54
- check use of system includes and sprintf()
55

Various ideas
57
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
58
- static: allow specifying a per-route filter program for setting route attributes?
59
- netlink: realms
60
- netlink: import Linux route attributes to our rta's, so that they can be filtered?
61
- config: executable config files
62
- client: access control
63
- io: use poll if available
64
- IPv6 router advertisements
65
- real multipath (doesn't seem to be simple at all :()
66
- fake multipath (even less simple)
67
- route recalculation timing and flap dampening [see RFC2439 for algorithms]
68
- aggregate engine: standard route aggregation and summarization [RFC2519]
69
- aggregate engine: injection of manually configured pseudo-static routes
70
- generate default route if any working BGP connection exists (aggregate engine again?)
71
- generate default route to IGP's (aggregate engine yet another time?)
72
- look at RFC 2386 (QoS-based routing)

OSPF
76
~~~~
77
	- refuse running on non-multicast devices
78
	- importing of device routes for networks where we don't run OSPF
79
	- check incoming packets using neighbor cache
80
	- RFC2328 appendix E: Use a better algorithm
81
	- automatic generation of external route tags (RFC1403)
82
	- RFC1587 NSSA areas
83
	- RFC2370 opaque LSA's
84
	- respect interface MTU and try not to create larger packets unless unavoidable
