Just put in the necessary values... interface names and the plugins. 
That should be enough for 99% of the mesh networks out there and should 
work well for stationary city meshs. If you want to be sure that you 
don't get in trouble with subnetworks, add the "IPv4Broadcast" to the interface section too.

Less is more.
