Thanks Andreas!

I found the plugin in Sourceforge.

You might want to update the link as followed by the 'CVS repository' button
at the left side of the www.olsr.org web page. It seems to refer to an old
(?) CVS structure at Sourceforge
(http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/olsrd/olsrd-current/lib/). The new
CVS structure I found at
http://olsrd.cvs.sourceforge.net/olsrd/olsrd-current/lib/ , which is found
by following the 'sf projectpage' button.

Best regards,
Erik
