It is my expectation that your interests and mine are best served by my
participation in some area that is a fairly narrow focus - networking.
I could use your guidance.
I am actively developing a documentation wiki for application software
in ham radio digital communication topic area. It fits on my own FC
platform and as such I expect to provide links to specific FC Docs
project pages. That is the easy part which does not need help from
yourselves. I have come upon a feature in FC-6 that does not function,
has little written about it, but probably does not constitute a bug. It
is here that I see I might fit.
Specific to this subject, using the "ifconfig" statement to establish an
alias IP address does produce what seems to be a valid definition, but
when a packet is built it contains an incorrect source IP address. This
is true on FC-6 up-to-date within weeks, but not true on ubuntu platform
operated by an associate of mine. Until FC documentation contains the
passage to describe the "should be" definition (that I can not locate
and believe may not exist) I can not consider this situation to be a
IF I am correct in my assertion, I am willing to draft a topic specific
FC-docs text as well as the alert text to my software users regarding FC
and an appropriate workaround. If I am not correct, perhaps I have
wasted your time...
So, I ask your direction into the group of developers for this subject
area to explore the options at hand?
Warmest regards from here,
