[Olsr-users] main address

I was doing a test on olsr 6.1 and saw that when I change a IP address 
on my router, it also change in http_info but if this IP is the main IP 
address, the main IP don't change.

Exemple, I run on eth0 and it's my main IP, if I change my ip 
address with ifconfig to then the IP of the interface on 
http_info will also change but the main address will stay

I readed on http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3626.txt that main IP and the IP 
address should always be the same but it date from october 2003. Is this 
still true ? Can I have a other IP address as main address or I must 
restart OLSRd ?

Also, is their something planned to do change in olsr configuration 
(like adding Hna or changing LinkQualityMult) without restarting the 
service ? Whe are looking for way to do change on the network without 
disrupting customer service.
