It should be quite easy to integrate Quagga in olsrd2... if you have
experience with Quagga.

I have never worked with Quagga myself, so this is a problem. We
cannot use Quagga's Zebra library because it is GPL, which is in
conflict with the OONF license.

I would really like to have a clean rewrite of the necessary Zebra
client code to get something with a clean license... the Quagga plugin
for olsrd has a hack as a license.

So if you find someone to do the work towards the Quagga side I will
do the work on the OONF side.
