At the Dutch DoD we have been working on adding position information
into our OLSR networks for a while now. We always envisioned a future in
which (the core of) OLSRd has more knowledge of node positions so that
it can calculate the link metrics a little better. We are not there yet

We currently have the PUD plugin (Position Update Distribution). It's
available on the PUD branch in the OLSRd git repository.

It implements position update distribution in an efficient manner, with
dampening, uplinking, and some more features.

Take a look if you're interested, and we would like to hear from you if
you have feedback :-)
