[Olsr-dev] MPR selection algorithm in olsr

olsr.org MPR selection is a topic that needs further study.

Few years back, there was some R&D effort to enhance OLSR.
There is an quite old branch, with link costs, using data rate probing plugin. I think it has an updated MPR selection also (to be checked).

You could check the master branch also, and implementation of MPR_COVERAGE.

It is an open question how much effort we put in current olsr (version 1), with ETX/ETT. 
I welcome an analyze of the problems, if any, and why MPR flooding is turned off.
You will see there is some confusion between MPR redundancy and TC redundancy, maybe even in the code....
You may easily get confused reading olsrv2 draft also, where there are Flooding MPRs and Routing MPRs.
