3/17/15 Weekly General Meeting
Max, Marc, Alex, April, Kelly, Martin
* We got a bunch of Western Digital MyNets! - They don't make them anymore :-( - But TP-link makes one that is exactly the same except a bit more expensive and with external antennas: - TL-WDR3500 http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=2268&model=TL-WDR3500 - TL-WDR3600 http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=2268&model=TL-WDR3500 - TL-WDR4300 http://www.tp-link.us/products/details/?categoryid=2166&model=TL-WDR4300 * Alex is working on the tunneldigger client! Hooray! - basically a new client - it works! - We need to clean repo (max soiled it!) - Plan is to extend to support protocols other than l2tp - Make more extensible :-D - Maybe we can submit a pull request for the second l2tp client * Chris the snake wrangler is working on the walled garden * We have phone from LMI * Marc and Matt worked on LUCI 2 * Max added polipo to the firmware. It seems to improve web browsing, but it'll be irrelevant for https and it might break some things (webdav?)
* Max will talk to Yar and tell her our new phone number * Max is going to continue to be in touch with snake wrangler on the walled garden * Marc is working on Configuration/makenode for MyNets and for the bridged wireless gear * Someone needs to write a thing that detects if rooftop nodes are connected/etc so that they can be managed by the admin interface. - Basically a ubus forwarding protocol * We might want to look into chaos calmer (newest openwrt release that hasn't been "stable released" yet) * We want to talk to at&t or others about getting a Gbit connection * It'd be nice to have colocation! For the exit server! * We should sit down and discuss network security - we can sit around and brainstorm ways to break the network and then maybe come up with some solutions for addressing them?
* Get bullets to match all the random antennas! * Authentication for the tunnel digger protocol? - Maxb think it's a good idea, maybe a lot of work?
