Alright then. I'm attaching current version for whoever want to take a look. If for some
reason the attachment does not go through I've made it available here


I've been testing it on OEL 6.5 box. One thing to note. This patch was generated
against 8.1.18 because I've started to work on the latest version used in fedora
not knowing that 8.1.19 was released. It will require some effort to port it to 8.1.20.
This is where the source repository would help a bit. 

As it stands right now this patch is not fully tested. I've tested some basic functionality
and run unit tests and everything seems to be working.

Any comments are appreciated.

There isn't a repository available.  Not yet, at least.  I was thinking about going from the old-school CVS repository I have locally to git and then shoving it into github as a public instance.  There's a bit of cleanup work I need to do to make that happen, however.

You can pull previous versions from the website (need to know the name) or hit it via ftp (to ftp.conserver.com) and get the old releases (naming is pretty straightforward).

Patches can just be sent to me directly, or more often, posted to this list so it's archived and others get a chance to work with it before I get around to putting it in an official release.

IPv6 is certainly a missing piece, and something I was going to look into (at some point).  I'm sure I'm not the only one that would like to see the patch!

I was wondering if there is a public source code repository with conserver where
we can see changes made between versions. I've looked at website but could
not find any.

Btw. is there any recommended process for patch submission? The reason I ask
is that I have rather big patch adding IPv6 support to conserver almost ready. I'm
still polishing code and testing it but it should be ready soon.

I've finally integrated and expanded a patch that was submitted over
3 years ago (yikes!) - direct IPMI serial over LAN support.  Hopefully
this will work just as well as forking off an ipmi command but also
allow less resource usage.

I'm curious to hear about any success or horror stories - share if you
can.  Thanks!

version 8.1.20 (Apr 4, 2014):
        - IPMI serial over LAN support via FreeIPMI - based on patch by Anton
          D. Kachalov <mouse@yandex-team.ru>
        - minor cleanup of code, removal of gcc warnings and such that should
          have no fuctional change
